Welcome to Sidney High School!

It is our mission to prepare, inspire, and motivate all learners to be their best possible self. Our staff and students will lead by example and will encourage a positive environment for learning. In our daily activities, we will be safe, we will be challenged, we will be collaborative, and we will be exceptional.


On behalf of our entire staff we want to ensure that every student has every opportunity to be successful academically.   


Parents/Guardians, please be active with your child's education and contact their teachers on a regular basis and check Power School for current grade information. Our collaboration will help in a positive educational experience for everyone.  


At Sidney High School we encourage parent involvement, we encourage SHS alumni to be involved with our events, and we want our students to enjoy their four years as a Sidney Yellow Jacket!


Thank you for your support of Sidney High School and call us anytime so we can help, 937-497-2238.


Mr. Doug Zimmer, SHS Principal
