Life at South Dearborn High School


Engaging. Hands On. Relevant. Just a few ways we'd describe a typical day at South Dearborn High School. Students thrive in our small town, community-based culture located within a safe, secure and beautiful campus. We offer state-of-the-art technology within our modern facilities including computer labs, Internet access & 1:1 Devices in our English Classrooms.

How We Operate
Our school operates on a Trimester Schedule, which includes three 12-week semesters, with five 70-minute class periods per day. We also offer a Balanced Calendar School Year, which increases Continuity of Instruction while reducing summer learning loss.

From an academic perspective, our school corporation recently had the highest ISTEP score increase compared to other area schools. This is just one indication of the commitment to academic achievement that you'll find at South Dearborn High School and throughout the entire South Dearborn Community School Corporation.

In addition to pure academic instruction, our students also participate in character education and our Bully Prevention Program & Drug Awareness Program to proactively address these real world concerns.

Meeting Every Child's Needs
We believe that our parents and students deserve access to resources that will help them get the most of our their school experience. With that in mind, South Dearborn schools offer:


Students grow socially as they have opportunities to become involved at every turn - from athletic teams to clubs and music programs. We hope you'll consider joining us.

Parent Testimonials

"The SDHS staff goes above and beyond to ensure student success!" - SDHS Parent

"As a parent, I like the dual credit offerings that will allow my student a head start for college." - SDHS Parent

Student Testimonials

"I took AP Biology my senior year of high school, and it was by far the most challenging class I ever decided to take. However, as soon as I got to college I realized it was the best decision I could have made. As a college freshman this fact not only gave me confidence, but helped me relax, and also not feel so lost in my new college experience.  Everyday, I use some tool that AP Biology taught me to solve a problem, or even know to study for a test. AP Biology not only only provided me with a VAST knowledge of biology itself, but the class taught me study skills and many other tools that are so crucial for college.  Seize the opportunity, you will never regret it."  - Crystal Nichols 2014 Graduate

Staff Testimonials

"Our staff is caring and always puts the needs of the students first." - R. Mersmann

"Just a great place to work. Very caring staff with super students." - C. Thomas
