Welcome to Spanish Fork High School! We couldn’t be more excited to welcome all new and returning students to SFHS. Our vision is: “Here, We Learn for LIFE.” Together, we’ll dive into how we LEARN, INTERACT, FOCUS, and EMPOWER. We believe these four elements will truly enhance our ability to live life to the fullest and find success! Our goal is to help all Spanish Fork High School students learn essential skills to prepare for the future, find happiness, and improve their abilities everyday.   

“Livin’ the Don life” is the theme you will hear throughout the year. To us, this means we strive to represent our Don family everywhere we go. We believe in being kind, respectful, accepting, positive, passionate, and resilient. We want to help every Don be academically centered, enhance their critical thinking skills, and become effective communicators. “Livin’ the Don Life” also means that we take care of each other, serve those around us, and show empathy. We exemplify proper social awareness and are ready for what the world has in store for us! At the end of the day, we want every student to know they can do hard things! 

Spanish Fork High School is a place where all people can learn in a safe and constructive environment. It is built around dedication and rigor. Our administration, counselors, teachers, and staff each have a deep love for education and the students of SFHS. Here you will find a multitude of opportunities both in academics and extracurricular activities. We encourage all students to participate in as many aspects of the high school experience as possible. We have worked hard to provide opportunities that everyone can enjoy and learn from. Remember that everyone in our building is here to help and we all need the support of those around us. Your success is our priority!

Welcome again to Spanish Fork High where we act on our vision, “Here, We Learn for LIFE,” and hope we catch everyone “Livin’ the Don Life!”
