I am a graduate of the 2010 class, and I loved my SSISD experience. The HS has some wonderful teachers that honestly want to see everyone succeed. I was involved in many activities and advanced courses. The HS has an amazing UIL academics program. Even though the HS was remodeled, it really needs to be larger. And the parking lot needs some intensive repairs. All in all, I would love to have my children attend this district.

I am a 1989 graduate of Sulphur Springs High School and have had 2 of my kids graduate from there as well. I have another child in that school now. They have good teachers that care.

Sulphur Springs High School was the best school I have ever attended. The teachers, with a few exceptions, are very good at what they do. They are very attentive to each student.

I think that the school is okay. Some teachers are very good at what they do although some shouldn't even be a teacher. The school puts more effort into the sports when they should be spending it on academics since that is what should be more important. The sports is really good especially the football team, but the academics like UIL and BPA should be looked into more and put more money into that fund than all the money going to sports.

In August new science and fine arts buildings opened to modernize facilities. Over 60% of students participate in extra-curricular activities which are open to all students. Last year the 24 year district academic champion ended with 2nd place finish. Several students advanced to state.

The long and short of it is that the High School is overcrowded and needs updating. My son will be a junior this year and he has mentioned many times that he wished there were a wrestling team. The main focus of this school is football, so, if your children don't play football, well then there is not much else to do. I have had 2 other children graduate from this high school, a son who loved theatre (Mrs. Magness is great) and a daughter who was in drill team. My youngest would love if there was a wrestling team, they have powerlifting, why not wrestling?

The classes here are generally overcrowded, and students are not given adequate attention due to this problem. SSHS employs some amazing teachers, but they're stretched far too thin and can only do the best job possible with what they're given. I have to specify that it is the school setup that bothers me, not the teachers.

My children had a great experience at SSISD. Sulphur Springs is a great community to raise a family and the schools are excellent and provide a great base for your children. The faculty and staff honestly strive to make school a great experience for every child there. There are many great organizations and extracurricular activities for your child to get involved in. I would most definetely recommend Sulphur Springs schools.

I think that all the SSISD schools need to be torn down. If you were to go in you would see how overcrowded they were, how they need better equipment, how the schools are falling apart and so much more. Also, all the good teachers aren't getting paid enough, they have too many coaches that are teachers who complain about not getting enough money but yet all their classes do is sit down and talk. SSISD needs to provide more activites for the kids so they aren't geting in trouble with bigger people in Sulphur Springs.
