I always felt included and welcomed at SHS. Being in the theater program really opened up a lot of possibilities for me, and even helped me make several good friends both inside and outside of the program.

The teachers do everything they can to help the students feel at ease and to help them understand the lesson at hand. I never felt ashamed to ask questions.

Go lions!

I have enjoyed my time at Searcy High School. There are a lot of memories that I will carry with me after I graduate. Being an athlete, I have spent a lot of time building relationships with other athletes...a bond that can't be broken. I have also been privileged to build relationships with my coaches that taught me more than the rules of football, wrestling and baseball; they taught me some rules of life. I have also been able to learn a lot and depend on my teachers to educate me and prepare me for post-graduation opportunities. Thank you, SHS!
Searcy High School is like family to me. There is a variety of different students and teachers that will help you with anything you need. Along with the academics and the friendships you will make, this school is certainly the one for you! From the roaring lions football games to the marching bands, you're in for a wild ride.
