Welcome to Simsbury High School, home of the Trojans!

Simsbury High School is a comprehensive high school with a long-standing tradition of excellence. Our students benefit from an impressive variety of academic, athletic, and extracurricular offerings, and close connections with staff members that are truly dedicated to their success. Our Core Values and Beliefs of Preparation, Passion, and Personal Growth serve as steadfast reminders that our goal is to connect students with their passion, help them to grow as individuals, and to prepare them for success in a rapidly changing world. We believe that our commitment to these principles coupled with the unsurpassed quality of our teachers and coaches results in a truly outstanding educational experience.

As you review our Program of Studies you will find that our academic, athletic, and extra-curricular offerings are incredible. The broad scope and depth of our programs provides our students with a high degree of personalization and challenge.

The Trojan Code outlines our positive behavioral expectations for the members of our learning community. By being Honorable, Respectful, and Responsible we are prepared to do our best work today, and poised to develop the character attributes and habits of mind that will ensure our continued success in the future.

Please feel free to contact us at any time for more information or to arrange for a tour of our campus.
