Principal’s Message

Welcome to Southport High School! As a school community, we aspire to support all students as they transition to the next phase of their lives. Southport High School offers a wide variety of challenging, enjoyable, and successful curricular opportunities in the form of: athletic programs, performing arts, and musical programs with various clubs and activities.

It is my desire that your child’s time with us is educationally profitable. Our goal, as a staff, is to provide all students with the opportunity to excel in academics, athletics, and fine arts so they may become positive, contributing members of our school and community. Southport High School has a dynamic, hardworking staff who is committed to student success and will exhaust all resources to make sure the needs of all our students are met.

Southport High School is proud of its commitment to technology. All students will continue to have the opportunity to be assigned a personal Chromebook for use in their classes this year. We are constantly striving to stay on the cutting edge of technology providing a more efficient building, increased communication, and most importantly, preparing our students for the fast-paced world they will face.

I believe SHS is a wonderful place for students from diverse backgrounds to grow educationally, get involved, and have a meaningful high school experience. In many cases, a student’s high school experience sets the stage for successes later in life and provides a lifetime of positive memories. I encourage your child to strive to become involved and engaged outside of the classroom as well. Extracurricular activities will not only enhance their high school experience, but they will also provide opportunities for students to learn the values of teamwork, individual and group responsibility, physical strength and endurance, competition, diversity, problem solving skills, and a sense of culture and community.

In every way that schools are measured, whether it is academically, in the fine and performing arts, or athletically, Southport High School excels.
