For the Week of 05.30.2016: This week’s Spartan Scholars of the Week are Alexis Gonzalez and Nicholas Calderon. They were nominated by Ms. Herrera. Both of these scholar-athletes graduated from the Los Angeles City Aquatics Lifeguard Academy on Sunday, May 15, 2016. They also represented Sylmar High School at the Los Angeles City Section Championships recently. This summer, they will be working as lifeguards for the city’s aquatics program. Congratulations, Alexis and Nicholas! For this honor, our scholars' names and photos 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.

For the Month of May 2016: In a concerted effort to celebrate our students' attendance accomplishments, we have a Monthly Perfect Attendance Award! Each month, we randomly select two students who have achieved a perfect attendance record throughout the previous month.

For this honor, they will receive several great prizes: a $20 gift card to Vallarta, a meal at Marie Callender's Restaurant, a special edition Sylmar tumbler, and a unique Perfect Attendance Medallion! The medallion can be worn during the graduation ceremony! Click on the headline for photos of this month's Scholars!
Sylmar High School has a new "School for Advanced Studies" program that is currently accepting applications. We offer differentiated instruction for gifted learners, GATE-trained teachers and opportunities for growth for all students. For the SAS program, your child does not need to be identified as Gifted and Talented but he/she does need to meet specific requirements. For more information, please visit the SAS website at http://shsadvancedstudies.weebly.com.
For the Month of May 2016: It is with a sense of great pride that we honor the 73 Sylmar Family members who had perfect attendance for the month of May!

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.
All Class of 2017 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 16, 2016, 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!
