  •  Highlights


    The following school highlights are just a few of the things that make Stockbridge High School an amazing place to learn and grow! These four items should allow you to see the rigorous learning, diverse experiences, and supportive culture that exists in our school. In Henry County Schools, we believe in giving every student a high quality, world-class education and we believe these highlights display our passion and commitment to do just that.



    SHS picStudent Outcomes
    Stockbridge High School is committed to providing every student with the best and most caring learning environment. Our most recent data shows growth in Biology and Algebra I on the Georgia Milestone End of Course Assessment. This growth was one of the highest in Henry County Schools. Our Biology Milestone End of Course Assessment saw a 16% increase from the previous year and our Algebra I saw an 8% increase from the prior year. Our most recent Health Survey data showed students, faculty, and staff enjoyed attending and coming to Stockbridge High School. Students, faculty, and staff reported that they felt safe and knew at least one caring adult they could go to in the building for support. Speaking of support, Stockbridge High School is the only high school in Henry County with an active PTO. Our PTO is committed to supporting our school’s mission and vision in ensuring our students graduate 100% college and career ready.                                                                                                         
    During the 2021-2022 school year, the PTO offered SAT/ACT preparatory classes through Applerouth Tutoring Services. As a result, students improved their SAT/ACT scores. Being a Tiger is something to be proud of! We believe in exposing our students to rigorous learning opportunities at Stockbridge High School. During the 2021-2022 school year, Stockbridge High School was named an AP Honor School for having at least four AP STEM courses. In addition, Stockbridge was recognized for having the TOP score in the country on the Introduction to Cloud Computing college course offered through Arizona State University. ”


     
    SHS picStudent Opportunities
    We are excited to share that Stockbridge High School, in collaboration with the National Education Equity Lab, will provide in-house college courses for college credit. The purpose of the program is to deliver credit-bearing college courses from top tier colleges and universities to underserved school communities. These courses are taught by a high school teacher (in-school or virtual) at no cost to students. The National Education Equity Lab is a nonprofit sponsored by the Gates Foundation and working with the Common App, Carnegie Corporation of New York, a Consortium of colleges and universities, and others to advance economic and social mobility opportunities for students from historically underserved communities at scale. Students can earn widely transferable college credits -- providing the opportunity to advance and demonstrate college readiness, and make college more affordable, accessible, and successful. As a hybrid online-classroom model, this opportunity has been called COVID-responsive, as it easily pivots to 100% virtual or hybrid if circumstances require.
     
    According to Amina Rhodes, our SHS instructor and collaborator of this opportunity at SHS, “I have had the pleasure of acting as the Supporting Teacher in the Poetry in America course at Stockbridge High School. This has been an awesome experience and a unique opportunity for our students to engage in lectures from Harvard professor Elisa New. The curriculum allows students to explore American poetry that has been influenced by city life and culture while analyzing the structural choices, language, and messages of poetry written by a diverse group of authors. The course provides students the opportunity to share what they have learned each week and interact with their fellow classmates from high schools across the country in weekly discussions, offering new insights and observing other perspectives. As an English teacher, I have enjoyed deepening my understanding and experience with poetry, and this course has inspired me with new and interesting ways of teaching it. I look forward to participating again next year!” One of our students, Taylor Boyce, stated “I joined Poetry in America, because I thought it would be a great opportunity and I wasn't wrong. It has been such a great experience talking to people from around the world. That's why my favorite part of the class is the discussions; I get to see different interpretations of the poems we've read. I've also learned a lot about the structures of poems and new literary terms. The class is giving me a new perspective on poetry and just how much of an impact it's had on American literature. I love this program and hope I get the opportunity to do it again next year.”


     
    SHS picClimate and Culture
    Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is a school-wide framework that focuses on developing and rewarding the positive academic, social, and emotional behaviors of all students. A team of Stockbridge High School administrators, counselors, teachers, staff, parents, and students began the initial phase of PBIS training during the 2018-19 school year. The PBIS team designed customized behavioral expectations and rewards systems based on school data and with input from staff, students, and parents. The team developed four school-wide behavioral expectations that are modeled, taught, and reinforced on a daily basis. They are Punctual, Responsible, Respectful, and Resilient. Individual students are nominated as Students of the Week and Month and entered into raffles. Groups are rewarded with events such as BBQs, Taco Tuesday, Film Festivals, and Dine and Paint. We have held pep rallies and partnered with anti-bullying organizations to host events such as No Place for Hate and High School Nation’s High School Tours. We have several student-led groups, including PBIS Ambassadors, and Lead 4 Change to promote self-awareness, personal responsibility, peer mentoring, and community service.

    One of our SHS teachers, Marjory Fortune, stated that “the SHS PBIS program connects and unifies teachers, students, and the community. There is no power greater than the positive relationships and support we provide for our future leaders.” We also have an acknowledgment and rewards system for teachers and staff via monthly “Tiger Shine'' awards, weekly inspirational quotes, jeans days, raffles, pink outs, departmental treats, personalized notes written on teachers’ doors and whiteboards, and more. Overall, the adoption of “The Tiger Way" framework has enhanced the culture, climate, and academic outcomes at Stockbridge High School.
     



    SHS pic Extracurriculars
    Stockbridge High School provides various extracurricular opportunities that foster peer collaboration, safe social interactions among students, and life-long learning. The most prevalent examples of these characteristics are seen within our Study Buddy initiative, Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA) Sip & Paint Event, and our Navy Junior Reserve Officers Training Corps (NJROTC) program. The Study Buddy program identifies students who need assistance within specific subject areas and pairs them with volunteer student leaders who excel in that same academic content area. Over the course of multiple sessions throughout the semester, students are able to articulate all areas of growth, find resolutions to those areas, and continuously hold each other accountable as each student progresses through the course. This also allows each student to receive assistance at his/her own pace within a safe and comfortable space. The Sip and Paint Event, among other events held at Stockbridge High School, was facilitated by the HOSA club and served as an example of club collaboration and networking to increase student engagement in school culture. 

    It also provided an opportunity for students to experience an event that was outside of the typical culture of the community. “The Sip and Paint Event was incredibly fun. It allowed us to come together, work with other school clubs, and participate in an activity that made school feel ‘normal’ again” stated Breanna Watson, president of the HOSA Club. According to Chef Jackson, SHS FCCLA sponsor, “making virtual connections that we cannot make physically, while also boosting morale, self-confidence, and an understanding of the curriculum.” The SHS NJROTC program has been identified as a distinguished unit, with high academic honors, for much of the preceding decade. This has included hosting and winning numerous competitions and experiences including brain bowls, drill teams, and rifle championships. The NJROTC instructors are integral in enhancing the college and career readiness of their students through providing exceptional internal and external experiences that prepare all cadets for postsecondary opportunities.
