The 170 students at Sudan High School are accustomed to hard work. The district encompasses 586.3 square miles and some students make a 90-mile round trip bus ride each day.

The majority of the high school students participate in many extra-curricular events ranging from athletics to the fine arts. Because of the small number of students, the high range of extracurricular participation, and the extremely high expectations from the staff, parents, and community, the high school teachers work together to share students in order to provide every opportunity to participate. This has led to a great amount of success at Sudan High School.

School demographics include 52% Hispanic, 46% Anglo, and 2% African American. Sixty percent of the students are economically disadvantaged. Some of the many milestones for the high school include 9 athletic state championships, 12 individual academic state champions, 2 academic team state champions, and 1 fine arts team state champion since 1982. Whether the school is sending students to state athletic or academic competitions in Austin, Texas, out of state to national academic competitions, or to Carnegie Hall in New York City to receive Gold Key Awards in fine arts, Sudan High School continues to educate its youth at a high level. Sudan High School continues to Strive for Honor and will always remain determined to Succeed.
