Important Information

Students are currently meeting with guidance counselors to discuss courses for the 2017-2018 school year. The program of studies, a vital part of this process, can be found below.
It is very important that students select the guidance website (found on the left hand navigation menu) to find out relevant information for secondary planning, AP testing, SATs, etc.

The Junior prom is on April 28. Students bringing outside guests should come into the main office to get a guest permission slip. All students will take a coach bus from SHS to the event venue. More information about the prom is found on the class facebook page or by contacting the class advisors - Ms. Skelton & Ms. Camire.

The Math MCAS will be held May 16-17. Students in grades 9, 11, and 12 will have late starts for 10:30 AM each day. Students in grade 10 are taking MCAS and should arrive at 7:50 AM.

Senior exams will take place the week before Memorial Day (May 23-26).
Senior week is the week after Memorial Day. The Senior Prom is at the State Room in Boston on May 30. If you have questions, please contact the advisors, Mr. Bennett & Mr. Tenney.

June 2- STEP UP DAY.

On Friday June 2, 2017, during Step Up Day, the Swampscott High School Library, together with local booksellers Spirit of ’76, will be hosting a Summer Reading Book Fair at the Swampscott High School Library. Students may purchase books with cash or credit card. Proceeds from sales of the books will benefit the Swampscott High School Library.

Graduation is Sunday, June 4. It is to be held inside at SHS as  Blocksidge Field is under construction.

Science MCAS will be held on June 5 & 6. We will not have late starts as the seniors will have graduated and there are more rooms available and more teachers to proctor the exam.

Final Exams are Monday June 19-Friday June 23.
