Smithson Valley High School Home

Welcome to Smithson Valley High School

Welcome Back to all of our returning students and if you are new to Smithson Valley we are excited you are going to be a Ranger, it is going to be a fantastic 2019-20 school year!  We have been very busy this summer with new staff hiring and preparing the school for our students return on Tuesday, August 27, 2019! 
 
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 four 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 2019-20 school year.
 
I look forward to seeing everyone and if you have any questions or comments please do not hesitate to contact me.
 
Go Rangers Go!
