Welcome to Staples High School!
This page was created to help you navigate the myriad of resources that are available to all Wreckers. While it allows you to explore all that Staples has to offer independently, it is important to know that you are never alone on this four year journey through high school. At Staples, we pride ourselves in our unwavering willingness to assist all students and provide the support that they need to succeed. It is essential that you become familiar with these resources and to establish connections with your teachers, counselors, support staff members, and administrators. Always maintain a balance between academics, outside extracurricular activities, and your social life so that you can reach your potential in a healthy manner. Use your four years as a time to broaden your horizons and make your high school experience a memorable one. I look forward to getting to know you and your families over the next four years. Take care of yourself, be well, and enjoy this transition into a world of opportunities.
