Southridge High School

Our Story:

Southridge High School is a warm, inclusive, and welcoming environment.  We are a staff of 140 supporting 1,475 Skyhawks coming to us primarily from Conestoga, Highland Park, and Whitford Middle Schools.  Southridge High School has a high level of academic and co-curricular opportunities. SRHS opened as an IB World School in 1999, and to this day the IB mission statement continues to guide the work and vision of the school.  At SRHS there are multiple academic opportunities for students to be successful in their high school career, preparing them for post-high school success.  These include 

  • the IB Program, both Diploma, and the Career-Related

  • five Career Technical Education Programs of Study Pathways and four Southridge High School Pathways

  • a Dual Language program

  • a Seminar class built into the schedule to provide interventions or extensions of learning

  • honors extensions available in Science, Social Studies and Language Arts classes

  • a Graduation Mentoring Program to support students who are in danger of not graduating

  • a Testing Center to support students who are in need of additional time or resources to complete assessments

  • AVID elective classes, and an AVID school-wide focus

  • a Future-Ready vision to provide students resources, technology, and library space to complete work and use information thoughtfully and productively.  

Our athletic programs have won 17 athletic, 1 band, and 1 Mock Trial state championships in 22 years, and our performing arts program routinely produces top-rate productions, represents at state-level competitions, and is growing in student interest and participation. In addition, Southridge is a diverse school with over forty languages spoken in our halls, and all levels of income represented. 

Our Vision Plan from 2022-27 has five areas of focus, with equity grounding our work, these areas of focus are: 

  • Focusing on instructional practice and strategies

  • Defining what it means to be a Skyhawk

  • Supporting students into, through high school

  • Streamlining and clarifying our academic programs

  • Creating a flex schedule to support diversity in learning

As our mission states, we are a community of compassionate critical thinkers who connect to our school, community, and world.
