Big Opportunities, Personalized
Stillwater Area High School is a comprehensive high school that provides incredible opportunities to our students - from nationally recognized music to unique hands-on science courses.
Something for everyone
Our students can choose from nearly 100 elective courses and can also enroll in more than 20 pre-college courses, which allows them to earn more than two years of college credit while still in high school. Not to mention the more than 25 varsity sports and 45 student clubs that keep our students active and engaged after the school day is over.
Big building, small and caring community
Our school looks big on the outside, but on the inside we've intentionally made it feel small and welcoming. We've created learning communities that help students connect with their peers and their teachers. We know our kids - their successes and their struggles - and we support them through school and life.
“We learn not for school but for life” is more than just our school motto. It’s our mission to help prepare you for a meaningful and enjoyable life beyond Stillwater Area High School - wherever your path leads you!
Putting Students First
Even before the first day of school, we do all we can to support our students.
- Link Crew orientation program: We welcome ninth graders and help them get familiar with the building and meet new friends.
- Building Assets, Reducing Risk (BARR): We pair a core group of three teachers with a small group of students to support them through the first two years of high school.
We give students Flex Time during the week to use in the way that best fits their needs. For some it may be used for interventions or tutoring. Others might use the time for catching up on course work or collaborating on a group project.
- Flex Time is more structured for freshman and sophomores –focused on orientation to the school culture and academic planning.
- Junior and seniors have more flexible time to self-select their focus.
Planning For The Future
We know kids learn best when they are learning about things that interest them, and that they perform better when they can see the connection between the classroom and the real world.
Our Pathways program helps students better understand their career options. We give them hands-on experience in a variety of areas so they leave high school ready for employment, a technical program, associate degree, certification, four-year college degree or the military.

Stillwater Area High School's Career Project is a platform for developing the workforce of the future. It provides ways for students to explore who they are and what they want in a career. It's also a way for employers who face a labor and skills shortage to provide expertise and experiential learning activities to the next generation of workers.
