On behalf of all of us at Sewanhaka High School, I would like to welcome you to our school community. Sewanhaka High School has a long and distinguished history of service to children and families. We are proud of our students. Acknowledged to be among the nation’s best, Sewanhaka has been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a Blue Ribbon School and school of excellence. Our students continue to achieve at high levels and make significant contributions to our community. Just as important as academic excellence, a heavy emphasis is placed on civility, citizenship, and character development.
As a school, it is our intent to deliver the very best instructional program possible to our students. Our curriculum is extensive, including 16 AP courses, college credit courses, a comprehensive career and technical education program, special education options, effective student assistance programs, and numerous enrichment opportunities.
Our school provides a full range of choices for students in determining their pathway to college and career. Students enjoy a full and rich selection of academic, vocational, practical work-experience, and extracurricular programs. Our school counselors are available to guide students through their secondary studies, allowing students to meet State requirements for graduation with a Regents or Advanced Regents diploma – and pursue their individual personal interests.
Our building administrative team, faculty, and staff are committed to excellence. Our school is recognized for this commitment at both state and national levels. SAT scores annually exceed state and national norms, and over 90% of our students pursue post-secondary education.
Thank you for your interest in our schools. This website is designed to help you learn more about our school community and the opportunities we provide to students. Please join us as we work together to support success for all students, one student at a time. Strong parental and community support enhances the quality of education at Sewanhaka. We hope you will visit the school often. Please come meet with us, talk to us, join the PTSA, and volunteer your time and energy. We know that your involvement, combined with the efforts of our outstanding faculty, will make this school year a rich and rewarding year for all students.
Chris Salinas, Ed.D.
