Through the pursuit of excellence in academics, arts, and athletics, the mission of Seneca High School is to create lifelong learners who are prepared to compete in a global environment and actively participate in diverse societies.


Drive Smart is a driving course, taught by the SDOC School Resource Officers, that all students must take prior to driving and parking on one of our campuses. This four-hour course will be taught at each of our three high schools and is designed to help teens gain the knowledge to drive defensively. The Drive Smart driving course will take the place of the requirement for Alive at 25. A student may still take the Alive at 25 course instead of Drive Smart.  Cost of the course is $25.00, this money will be used to pay the instructor and repaint parking lots on all of our campuses.

Drive Smart will be offered on:
Saturday, November 14th @ SHS
Saturday, February 13th @ SHS
Saturday, May 8th @ SHS
*Other dates are available at other schools in SDOC. Seneca students may attend Drive Smart at any SDOC location.*
