Welcome

Experience High School @ South Mountain
 
 
South Mountain High School is the first and oldest high school in the South Mountain community, educating students since 1954.  It is also home to five magnet programs—Aviation and Aerospace Education; Law Studies; Performing Arts (dance, music and theatre); Visual Arts and Communication Arts.  We have our own art gallery, court room, radio station and simulated Air Traffic Control tower, as well as one of the largest and well-equipped auditoriums in the state.  We also have a full academic curriculum - including Advanced Placement, Honors and AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) classes, as well as evening school.  The well-rounded learning is evident in the success the South Mountain Academic Decathlon has achieved, qualifying for the State Championships in 20 of the past 21 years. 

The experienced teaching staff includes four Nationally Board Certified teachers, other award-winning instructors, and annually, excelling students earn over one million dollars in college scholarships.  Because of our magnet programs, the arts flourish at South - from acting and dancing, to sculpture and computer art.  South Mountain also has a rich athletics tradition, winning 33 State Championships and sending many student athletes to the college and professional ranks.  A brand new PE building, with exceptional training equipment, is one example of South Mountain’s commitment to educating the “whole” student.  South Mountain's mission is to create a community of learners who are productive citizens in an ever-changing society.  South Mountain is proud to be named an AVID certified school site.  In synthesis with the Phoenix Union High School District mission, the AVID mission is to close the achievement gap by preparing all students for college readiness and success in a global society.
