Summertime Construction

SCHS will see it's final phase of a long-term renovation project this summer.  The major projects this summer are:

Quad - the majority of the old quad is being demolished to make way for a new, beautiful design featuring two grass areas, a raised stage, built-in benches, and quite a few trees.  Demolition started the Monday after graduation, and construction will last into early August.

West Parking Lot - the staff lot will be redone, including the removal of construction portables. Most of this work will be done in July.

Tennis Courts - the portables on the tennis courts will be removed from campus, and the tennis courts will be resurfaced.  The exact timeframe is not 100% set on this, but the courts should be ready in the fall.

SCHS ranked in Top 7% of U.S. high schools

SCHS ranked in Top 10% of high schools nation-wide

U.S. News & World Report has ranked SCHS higher than 93.2% of other high schools in the country for preparing students academically for college, earning us a Silver Medal for 2013.  This is the second year in a row in which SCHS had earned this award.

Proof of Residency and Schedule Pick-up

Here are the steps families will need to take before school starts.

PROOF OF RESIDENCY: All incoming and returning families will need to provide proof of residency.  The instructions for this process were mailed to homes in late June.  If you did not receive a letter, please contact SCHS Registrar Virginia Rios at 408-423-2646 to make sure that we know that you are planning to come to SCHS next year.  Once families have completed this, they will 

The hours for submitting proof of residency documents are:

  • July 21-August 1: 7:30-3:00
  • July 23 & July 30: 7:30-6:00

SCHEDULE PICK-UP:  Upon completing the Proof of Residency, families will be given an information packet.  This packet will include information about a variety of activities on campus and our school's Parent/Student Handbook.  Normally, it would also include the superintendent's handbook, but, due to a printing problem, that handbook is currently only available online. CLICK HERE FOR THE SUPERINTENDENT'S (DISTRICT) HANDBOOK.  The information packet gives instructions on which documents need to be returned prior to schedule pick.  Those key items are:

  1. Page 2 of the Superintendent's (District) Handbook, including handbook acknowledgment, use of technology, and media release (gold)
  2. Cell Phone/Electronics Policy Form (pink)
  3. Emergency Release Form (green)

Please bring these items to the schedule pick-up day, which is:

  • Seniors - August 5th from 8:00 to 9:00 am
  • Juniors - August 5th from 9:15 to 10:15 am
  • Sophomores - August 5th from 10:30 to 11:30 am
  • Freshman - August 12th as part of the Link Crew Orientation from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm
