In the High School, teachers work to prepare each student to meet the requirements of a rigorous curriculum that includes 15 AP courses, fostering critical thinking and complex reasoning crucial to post-secondary success.
SSIS teachers teach students, not classes; students, faculty, and staff work together one-on-one and in small groups to achieve clearly defined goals, in the process engendering kindness and mutual respect.
SSIS high school students regularly participate in local, regional and state tennis, soccer, and baseball competitions. Eligible SSIS students have joined fellow islanders on soccer, softball, baseball, basketball, track, golf, sailing and swim teams.
- Spring Street students see their families, their communities, and themselves as participants in a much larger world.
- A progressive academic program, including 10 select APs, inspires mastery in the sciences, humanities, and arts.
- Our location in the San Juan Islands, at the heart of Friday Harbor, presents day, boarding, and weekday boarding students with opportunities for real-world life experience through mentorships, outdoor excursions, and global expeditions that foster leadership and group cooperation, preparing each student for success in higher education-and life.
