Principal's Message

Thank you for visiting our website.

Streetsboro H.S. is on the rise.  We are rated "Excellent" by the Ohio Department of Education.  On the most recent report card, we met 12 out of 12 indicators and achieved a 103.8 Performance Index Score.  We now offer five A.P. classes, representing all four core content areas, and we are considering adding more A.P. classes.  For the first time we are offering a Dual Enrollment Course (U.S. Modern History), which allows a student to earn both SHS credits and three credits from Kent State University, at no cost to the student.  For the first time ever we are offering a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) course, which provides an outlet for students interested in learning about those fields in a deeper way.  We offer our students the opportunity to earn college credits while in high school through our Post-Secondary Education Options program, and for those interested in focusing on vocational training we offer many programs at Maplewood Career Center.  Currently, approximately 2/3 of our students pursue some type of post-high school education, and we are looking to increase that percentage.  As an extension of that goal, we annually offer students a series of field trips to local college campuses. 

Our academics are on the rise, but so are our extra-curricular offerings.  Recently, members of our Track and Field, Wrestling, and Football teams have made it to the state meet, tournament, and playoffs.  Our volleyball team has won the conference for many years running.  Whatever your interest, we probably have a club or a sport that interests you.  Some of our clubs include Academic Challenge, Beta Club (a volunteer organization), Anti-Bullying Club, International Cultures Club (ICC), National Honor Society, the Orbiter (our school newspaper), Rocket Rowdies (pep club), Yearbook, Student Council, Recycling Club, Anime Club, Rocket Tutoring (peer tutoring group), Fitness Club, Book Club, Math Puzzles & Games Club, and Computer Club.  

SHS is on the rise.  We are constantly looking for ways to increase our academic and extra-curricular offerings.  We want our students to be increasingly college ready.  Our staff works incredibly hard to meet those goals, and our students continue to amaze us with their positive attitudes and creativity.  This is a great place to be, both for students and adults.  

Thank you for your support, and Go Rockets!
