Welcome to Southern Garrett High School

Southern Garrett High School, the largest educational facility in predominately rural Garrett County, Maryland, strives to provide students with a variety of educational experiences to meet their individual needs. By providing successful school experiences, we prepare students to become life-long learners. We challenge students to strive for personal excellence and responsible citizenship as they develop intellectually, socially, emotionally, and physically.

 

Thank you, Get 'N Go, our Business Partner of the Month for February.

 

Attendance Policy Change
Southern Garrett High School believes that it is imperative that all students be punctual to school and attend classes regularly.   As we know, there is a direct relationship between regular attendance and academic achievement which leads to completion of the school program.
We believe that regular attendance not only facilitates the continuity of classroom instruction and student participation, but also creates a more positive school climate thus enhancing each student’s desire to complete high school.
 
In our effort to increase student achievement and to decrease the number of student absences, Southern High School will implement the following additional changes to our school policies and procedures.
 
Strawberries for Sale
The FFA and JROTC is selling strawberries until Feburary 16th. A flat is $24, 1/2 flat is $14 and a quart is $3.50. A flat contains 8 quarts. Any questions, please see an FFA member, JROTC member or FFA advisor Rebecca Winegardner.
