Welcome Back to all of our returning students and if you are new to Smithson Valley High School we are excited you are going to be a Ranger. It is going to be a fantastic 2021-22 school year! We have been very busy this summer with new staff hiring and preparing the school for our students return on Tuesday, August 24, 2021!
Very soon our halls will be filled with enthusiastic students ready and eager to learn. Our staff will be prepared to provide a safe and nurturing environment for all students along with a rigorous curriculum so that all of our students will be college and career ready when they graduate. It is essential to keep the home to school communication ongoing to continue to have a successful school year.
Smithson Valley High School enjoys a rich history of excellence academically and in all of our extracurricular events. In fact, according to the Scientific Business Journal, Smithson Valley High School has been named one of the premier high schools in the San Antonio area for the last five years in a row. By working together, I am confident that we can make Smithson Valley an even better school for our students to learn and grow as we enter the 2021-22 school year.
I look forward to seeing everyone and if you have any questions or comments please do not hesitate to contact me.
The Exceptional Senior Award honors students who have consistently displayed high levels of character, leadership, integrity and diligence. The award is in its second year and is presented to seniors across Texas' 21st Congressional District.
For 20 years Comal ISD has honored the top graduating seniors from each of its high schools with a special academic recognition banquet. The 2021 honorees along with their chosen mentor teachers were honored once again with a banquet, but instead of one banquet, the district hosted four.
Being ranked in the top 5, 10 or 15 percent of the graduating class is not an easy feat. That's why Comal ISD students who earn this ranking are celebrated and honored. Here's a list of the 2021 honor students.
Four Comal ISD students from the Class of 2021 were National Merit Finalists this year, and one was a National Merit Scholarship Winner. This places these graduates among the top 1 percent of 1.5 million students.
Comal ISD is proud of its students who choose to serve in the United States military after graduation. The Class of 2021 continues this tradition to serve with students who are enlisting, entering military academies and attending college on ROTC scholarships with the intent to serve.
The Class of 2021 from Comal ISD walked the stage at five graduation ceremonies recently. Collectively, they earned more than $26.3 million in scholarships, 58 joined the United States military with three appointments to military academies and four were named National Merit Finalists including one National Merit Scholarship Winner.
This year's District Teachers of the Year share the same last name, but they are not related. They do, however, share the same philosophy when it comes to teaching - show up and focus on the relationships.
