Hello Spartan families,

Welcome to SSS! We are happy you are here and trust you will find most of what you are looking for as you navigate our website. We are available to help support your student in a variety of ways. SSS is the most diverse high school in the district and we have a diverse and capable staff willing to help your student show success! 


SSS is an AVID and IB World school. Every student has an opportunity to study French or Spanish in 9th and 10th grades with ample growth in the 11th and 12th grades to prepare them for careers, college, and life. Many other opportunities will support your student's passion and dreams! We are home to the only robotics team for a traditional public school. We also boast a National Award winning band and have career and college prep programs such as AVID, IB Diploma and Career related programmes, National Academy of Hospitality and Tourism, Fire Science, Welding, and our newest Academy, JoCo Teach, which educates and trains students to become teachers while in high school. Many of our programs accept students from around the district with transportation provided. 


The greatest thing about SSS is that this is a place for everyone to belong. I invite you to continue to browse our website, but to also reach out to us through email or over the phone to set up a time to come by and see Sparta Nation for yourself. No matter whether your student is A+ or needs help getting back on track, you will find an inviting and supportive environment at SSS!


And remember, Once a Spartan, Always a Spartan! 

David K. Allen, Principal
