Sheyenne High School hopes to prepare students to exhibit global and community awareness, communication and technological literacy, the ability to access and evaluate information, an appreciation of the humanities, respect for the individual, and self-knowledge. The ultimate purpose of all education is to make the students their own teachers. These are accomplished through a balance of excellent broad-based academic, vocational, co-curricular programs that in themselves demonstrate accountability and flexibility necessary to meet the demands of today's world.
The original building was built in 2007 to serve as a 9th grade center for all of the district’s 9th grade students. The building was expanded in 2013 to include additional classrooms and began to house south side 10th graders. Another expansion was added in 2014 to include two gymnasiums, locker rooms, athletic space, music classrooms, and a theater. For the first time in its existence, Sheyenne High School housed students in grade 9-12 for the 2015-16 school year. The school serves all high school students south of I-94. The building shares a 75-acre site with Liberty Middle School and has 47 core classrooms with a capacity of 1,550 students.
