SINTON HIGH SCHOOL

 

Dave Odem Learning Center was the original high school in the early 1900's until 1927 the adminstration office was built as the new high school, up until 1967 Sinton was growing and the district decided to build the new high school in the fall of 1967 the current one opened it's doors to students. Since then it has changed alot in the beginning of this decade SHS added a new band hall, library, and a gym. The old gym is still used for pep rallies. In spring of 2007 they also added a new Ag department.

Sinton High School has an enrollment at least 620 students yearly but in 2007 the enrollment dropped to 596. SHS has great landscaping in the front of the school there is a chain-link shape of a S with a anchor. As you enter the doors you will notice a Pirate mural on the floor, also in the main corridor are rows of trophy cases a display of SHS accomplishments in years past. In the fall of 2006 the school district decided to install a fence around the campus with a security guard booth at the entrance to prevent shootings around the area.  Since there have been reports of campus shootings around the United States.
