Experience the power of public education.
It’s a great time to be a BEAR! We will begin this school year in our new three-story classroom expansion building that boast state-of-the-art science labs, a new media center, cafeteria and more than 30 additional classrooms in an open airy environment. We have three other buildings that are currently under construction and are scheduled to be complete within the next year. The Indoor Practice Facility (IPF) will open in January, the Performing Arts Center will open in July of 2020, and the Multipurpose Arena will open on August of 2020. This will complete the $65M capital improvement and expansion of the SHHS campus.
Sylvan Hills High School has shown great growth in population over the last couple of years and is one of the fastest growing schools in central Arkansas. We boast award- winning programs in Journalism, Engineering, Medical Sciences, EAST, Choir, Band, Art, and have championship-caliber athletic teams.
Sylvan Hills High School students excel in the classroom. This past year we were honored to have three National Merit students and the senior class was offered more than $8M in scholarships. Sylvan Hills is part of the Arkansas Advanced Initiative for Mathematics and Sciences (AAIMS) to strengthen the teaching of Advanced Placement courses in mathematics, science, and English. This past school year our student participation in the Advanced Placement Program grew by 45% and the number of Advanced Placements administered grew by 60%. Additionally, the percentage of students achieving qualifying scores grew.
Our motto is “Sylvan Hills High School Builds Champions…on the field…in the classroom…in life!”
