Learn about what you can expect in 9th Grade

Stillwater Area High School provides a wealth of opportunities for students - from nationally recognized music to unique hands-on science courses. Students can choose from nearly 100 elective courses in art, music, agriscience, engineering and more. They can also enroll in more than 20 college level courses, which allows them to earn more than two years of college credit while still in high school. Not to mention the 25 varsity sports and 45 student clubs that keep our students active and engaged after the school day is over.

Principal Bach welcomes students and families to the high school and tells you what to expect in 9th grade.
