Secondary and middle school academic and extra-curricular offerings keep in mind that each student's strengths, needs, and interests are unique. Economics, Auto-CAD, Parenting and Foods, Spanish, German and Drama- a curriculum designed to aid both those college and vocationally bound. Students may participate in tennis, cross country, football, volleyball, basketball and track as well as numerous fine arts activities. SHS students have consistently earned top ratings at instrumental, vocal, and art contests and teams can boast recent state medalists in tennis, cross country, track, and debate-as well as 12 consecutive state championships in forensics.

Additional help is also available by way of SHASTA, an after school club which offers special tutorial services. There's also an online weather lab at the grade school.
