Springboro High School is a public high school, in Springboro, Ohio, United States, with a total of over 2,000 students and 120 teachers. The student population has continued a steady trend of growth of 100 students per school year since the early 2000s. The ratio of males to females is 1:1, and the teacher to student ratio is 1:20. The Springboro Community City School District serves the city of Springboro and parts of Franklin, Clearcreek, Wayne, and Turtlecreek townships.
Springboro High School is the only public high school in the suburb of Springboro, population 18,500, and the only high school in the Springboro Community City School District. The school has been ranked academically "excellent" on a consistent basis, the highest possible rating by the state of Ohio Department of Education. SHS was established in 1893. In the 2011-12 school year SHS was honored as the top public high school in the Great Lakes Region and received the Blue Ribbon award of Excellence from the US Department of Education.
The current home of SHS has been open since August 1998 with two new academic wings added on and opened in August 2006. It is Springboro's third building used as the high school within the past forty years. The addition was $12 million, while the school was originally built for about $30 million.
Springboro High School athletic teams are known as the Panthers, while the school colors are white and royal blue. The athletic program was a charter member of the Fort Ancient Valley Conference from 1964, when it joined as Clearcreek High School, until 1998. After many years of winning the All-Sports Trophy in the former Mid-Miami League, Springboro left for the Greater Western Ohio Conference, keeping heated rivalries with Lebanon High School and Miamisburg High School
Springboro Community Schools completed a multimillion-dollar partnership with Miami Valley Hospital, giving them naming rights to the stadium CareFlight Field, named for the hospital's "CareFlight" helicopter. This deal also provides CareFlight Field with turf surfacing, a new track, and a three-story building which will house doctors' offices and athletic facilities, along with an adjoining press box. It was completed in 2009.
Along with the football facilities, SHS basketball coach Troy Holtrey raised over $23,000 during the summer of 2006 to build a state of the art locker room. It comes complete with custom built lockers, automatic-retracting projector screen with high quality sound, and custom Springboro Panthers carpeting.
