Our Culture

Culture and Programs:

Springdale High School serves nearly 2,100 students in a 10th - 12th grade setting from a variety of cultural backgrounds. Two hundred and seventeen staff members serve the students of SHS. This team consists of 5 administrators, 172 teachers, and 40 non-instructional staff members.
Our school operates on a traditional seven-period day and course credits are awarded at the end of each semester. We offer a full range of academic programs from self-contained classrooms, advance placement (AP) courses, an International Baccalaureate (IB) program, and seven career academy programs. Students have the opportunity to participate in numerous extracurricular service programs, opportunities in fine arts, interscholastic athletics, and academic competitions. Springdale High School, the performing arts center, Bulldog Stadium, and the other auxiliary buildings are located on a 31-acre campus near downtown Springdale.

Mission and Vision:

Springdale High School has one overarching mission that can be summed up in three words, "Teach Them All." Dr. Jared Cleveland has been the superintendent of the Springdale School District since 2020 and under his leadership, the faculty and staff at SHS have continued to embrace this challenge and transform its approaches to meet the educational needs of an increasingly diverse student population.

We are committed to ensuring that our curriculum is accessible and comprehensible to all learners and that proper differentiation and scaffolding measures are in place for our English Language Learners (ELLs). The educational professionals at SHS strive to provide students with opportunities to excel in the areas of academics, fine arts, athletics, and other extra-curricular activities. In our school, we have established a culture of excellence, a culture of vision and innovation, and a culture of inclusion.

School Values and Collective Commitments:

Educators at SHS base their efforts on four values: student achievement, safety, diversity, and partnerships. Student achievement is the top priority of our school. Students have many opportunities to earn industry-recognized certifications in any of the seven career-focused academies offered in the academic program at Springdale High School.

Student safety is a benchmark of our school and district. This commitment can be seen in the district’s collaborative school resource officer program in conjunction with the Springdale Police Department.

Our school also fosters meaningful partnerships with community patrons to accomplish its mission and vision. In addition to collaborative efforts with the city of Springdale and the police department, SHS also fosters numerous partnerships with members of the business community that support our numerous Career and Technical Education programs.

We are committed to preparing our students to live and work in a complex global economy and to prepare our graduates to assume responsible roles in our local community and the larger world community. Partnerships with parents, guardians, and community partners help us meet the needs of our students so that they can be successful.
