DHS Sports

Eligibility for participation in all extracurricular activities is determined at the end of each marking period. To be eligible to play sports, a student must achieve a minimum GPA of 2.0 in all subjects. More than one failure (F) automatically disqualifies a student from participation. The year-end cumulative mark is used to determine eligibility during the first marking period of the following school year. Marks earned during the summer may be applied to improve the year-end cumulative marks.​

Varsity sports will be played in conjunction with other larger Springfield Public Schools high schools. We will offer club sports such as golf and rowing on our campus.
