The application to School District Five’s Spring Hill High School for the 2024-2025 school year opens on November 9.
Spring Hill High School (SHHS), Career Pathways Magnet, opened its doors in August of 2013 as an all-choice, all-magnet public high school.
The school is ranked as the number one Open Enrollment Magnet School in the state by U.S. News & World Report.
SHHS has been able to achieve local, state and national rankings by providing students the opportunity to explore pathways in engineering, entertainment, entrepreneurial, environmental studies and exercise science.
Students are able to take courses in one or more of the pathways to develop their talents and interests and to expose them to what they believe are their passions.
“It is often believed that a magnet program offers a narrow focus to students,” said Dr. Michael Lofton, principal. “Here at SHHS, our belief is that we want students to explore their interests and try new things to discover who they are and where they want to go in the future. “
There is no academic criteria to become a member of SHHS. With a student body of 1,100, the school offers 22 different Advanced Placement courses. For the 22-23 school year, 755 AP exams were administered with an 82 percent pass rate with 37 percent of the student population taking at least 1 AP exam. SHHS is also recognized by The College Board as an AP Honor Roll School and has earned the AP Access Award for providing equitable access to advanced coursework for their students.
Walking the halls of Spring Hill High School, you will hear students and staff refer to “The Spring Hill WAY”. The WAY stands for Working with Others, Academically Focused, and Youth-Inspired. The goal of The WAY is that in addition to challenging and motivating each other, students share knowledge, celebrate successes, and work together to achieve common goals. By developing appreciation and respect for one another’s differences and actively seeking opportunities to embrace diversity, the school is preparing students to become productive members of the modern workforce in today’s connected world.
At Spring Hill, students are encouraged to get involved with extracurricular activities to include intramural and more than 40 student led clubs.
