Sterling High School Sterling High School district offers a complete, quality program of education for all of its students. Academic, athletic and extra-curricular offerings give their students the opportunity to develop needed skills and explore areas of interest. Each Sterling student graduates well-educated and experienced enough to succeed after high school.

At Sterling, the school district personnel, parents and community work together to make the school a great place to learn. According to the school’s website, the Parent-Teacher-Association (PTA) and many booster clubs help promote students’ community service and civic awareness.
