Meet This Week's Spartan Scholar of the Week!

For the Week of 02.08.2016: This week’s Spartan Scholar of the Week is Benjamin Orozco, a 9th grader in our Advanced Studies Program. He was nominated by Ms. Garcia. Ben has greatly improved in his Honors English and Tech and Media classes over the past couple of months. Ben has discovered a love for photography and is doing all that he can to learn more about it. Ben donated his time after school to photograph the staff Christmas celebration. He was very professional and impressed many staff members. Ben is great at teaching others about photography and has a lot of potential. Congratulations, Ben! For this honor, our scholar's name will be placed on the marquee and on the home page of our web site all week. In addition, each scholar has received a special Spartan Scholar Medallion, a ticket to Northridge Skateland, a Sylmar limited edition tumbler, and a free meal from Marie Callender’s Bakery.Click on the headline for a photo of this week's Scholars!

Attend Today... Achieve Tomorrow!

At Sylmar High School, attendance matters! We are learners today, so that we can be leaders tomorrow! We expect all students to be present at school at least 96% of the time, which translates to no more than seven absences for the entire school year! We understand that there may be times when students will need to be absent from school. Please read our attendance policy below for more information on our attendance systems.

Seniors - Our 2015-2016 Senior Attendance Policy Is Now Available!

All Class of 2016 seniors, as a condition for participating in the Graduation Ceremony, must have a record of good school attendance during their senior year. Good school attendance will be determined by the guidelines established in our Senior Attendance Incentive Program and will affect participation in the ceremony and senior activities. The Senior Attendance Incentive Program begins on the first day of school, August 18, 2015, or the first day the student enrolled into our school. All absences, both excused and unexcused, from that day forward until the end of the school year will be counted for the Senior Attendance Incentive Plan. Please click on the link for the details!
