Mission and Vision


Shortridge High School educates young adults to think freely, demonstrate intellectual vitality, and address needs and realities greater than themselves. 


The Shortridge High faculty and staff share a common vision of education. 

Education is a powerful force that must be leveraged to create a safer, more equitable and prosperous community. Through education, our students will achieve academic success and become active and engaged citizens who work for the greater good of society.  

We must teach our children tenacity, integrity, perseverance, help them develop a sense of self, and empower them in the service of others. Shortridge High School graduates will apply their skills and passions to create a lasting impact on their community.

“A disciplined mind and cultivated heart are elements of power.” ~ Caleb Mills
