Sheridan Technical High School is a magnet school where through a blended learning approach high school students are offered a four-year course of study delivering high rigor academic and technical instruction while infusing technology into various aspects of program operation.
Our vision is to provide our students with the occupational, academic, and higher-order thinking skills needed to function effectively in a technologically advanced society, a globally competitive marketplace, and an information–based economy.
Integrating rigor, relevance, and relationship, graduates are eligible to earn not only a high school diploma and acquire college credit leading to an Associate’s degree, but also may acquire certification in one of over 25 technical fields. All courses are taught at Honors or Advanced Placement level. Delivered through a block schedule, traditional high school coursework is merged with the requirements for technical certification over the four-year high school program of study.
Sheridan Technical High School is a state-of-the-art public magnet school with a theme of Technical Education. Students receive highly rigorous academic and technical instruction with technology infused into all of their classes. Our students graduate with both the academic requirements necessary for entry into post – secondary education (college) as well as technical training in one of over 20 technical career choices.
