Mr. David Jones, Principal
Welcome to Sarasota High School, proud home of the Sailors. Thank you for taking the time to explore our website! We offer the most comprehensive high school experience of any school in southwest Florida!
This is a bold statement! Please continue reading and exploring so that you understand why we can state this with such confidence! Whether you are a current student or the parent of a prospective high school student, we want you to know that we are very proud of our school, our traditions, and our numerous accomplishments.
Every year of high school is precious, and we want our students to maximize the many opportunities offered at Sarasota High School. We believe that each student is special, and we strive to find the best ways to tailor the experience to the individual student. We encourage our students to get involved in the life of our school and the greater SHS community. Most of our students are involved in activities and clubs, athletics, volunteer work, or leadership. Our students are multi-talented, and we are committed to helping them become well-rounded citizens. Our ultimate goal is to encourage every student to be involved in at least one extra-curricular activity.
Wishing you an outstanding school year! Please call us if we can assist with your child’s success at Sarasota High School. Go Sailors!
