Samson High School offers a full range of opportunities--academically, athletically, and socially. We offer advanced courses giving students the opportunity to do college-level work and earn college credit hours while still in high school. The school also provides a curriculum that allows students to prepare for work in skilled jobs through our Career Technical courses. Students may become a "completer" in our Career/Tech Program and receive an additional seal on their diploma. Our school takes great pride in Business Industry Certification (BIC) and fully supports the tremendous efforts of the Alabama State Department of Education and the Career/Tech Department.
Our school offers opportunities to our students through athletic involvement. Our female students compete with other high schools in basketball, softball, and cheerleading. Our girls basketball team has won the 2A State Championship in 2006 and 2007! Back to Back State Champs! TWO IN A ROW! GO LADY TIGERS!!! Our male students compete in football, basketball, and baseball. Most importantly, our students are taught to win or lose with dignity and pride in themselves and their school.
The opportunities provided for our students to grow socially come from a wide variety of activities and clubs which are available to all who wish to participate. Our clubs and organizations consist of : FBLA, FFA, FCCLA, FCA, FTA, Student Council, Tiger Representatives, Tigers for Christ, YASC, Yearbook, Newspaper, and Spanish Club. Many of the best and most memorable lessons in life come from these social interactions.
