Welcome to the 2019-2020 School Year

  • Dear Students and Parents,

    As summer draws to a close, I hope that you have accomplished all that you wanted and that you are energized and ready to begin a new school year at SHS.  

    The focus of our curriculum at Southmoreland High School is to ensure that our students learn at the highest levels.  Our systems of providing high quality learning for all students, as well as intervention time during the school day, have shown to be important elements for our students' academic development. 

    College Preparatory courses are the standard in our system, and we provide a guaranteed and viable curriculum for all of our students.  In an effort to maximize the learning opportunities for our students, we will be integrating new courses in mathematics, language arts, and computer/informational sciences.  

    Southmoreland High School continues to be a leader in student achievement, a school that is data-driven, and a place where students learn at the highest levels.  Most recently, The U.S. News and World Report ranked SHS 103rd out of 688 schools in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, and 25th in the Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area.  

    Thank you for your continued dedication to our school and community.  I look forward to working with you this school year. 


    Daniel M. Krofcheck
