Students Taking Renewed Interest in the Value of Education (S.T.R.I.V.E)

STRIVE is a mentoring program for students at SAHS with emphasis on preparing for post-graduation opportunities and responsibilities while working to improve grade point average. The program's goal is to motivate interested Stillwater High School students to discover their own strengths and talents so as to increase their personal and academic achievement. Incentives are offered through scholarships for the students for their post graduate education.

Mentors are the key to this program's success by sharing their experiences, their knowledge and their advice to help these students make the most of their high school years.

STRIVE meetings will be held approximately once a month at Stillwater High School. Lunch is provided. In addition, there will be an occasional field trip, Rotary meeting, and several service projects scheduled throughout the school year.
