Steele High School

Home of Comet Nation!

Our Mission at Marion L. Steele High School is to prepare students to meet, to the best of their abilities, the academic, social, civil and employment needs of the future, and to produce the foundation for the development of ethics, values and the desire for continued learning.

We do this through offering a wide range of curricular programming that includes college preparatory courses in the core areas, a wide range of electives in music, art, theatre, world languages, nine AP courses, a Medical Technical Health Program, and fifteen College Credit Plus courses. We also offer intervention support services and programming to assist students to reach their potential. Marion L. Steele High School also offers students 21 Varsity Sports, 17 Clubs & Activities, and award winning Band, Theatre and Choir programs.
