Sigonella Middle High School is a Department of Defense Education Activity (DoDEA) serving grades 6-12 with a high school population near 100 students, located at the United States Naval Air Station (NAS) Sigonella, in Sicily, Italy. The base is situated in a large agricultural valley about 12 kilometers from Sicily's east coast near the city of Catania. To the north, Mount Etna, a 3,300 meter high active volcanic peak, makes a scenic backdrop for the base. The majority of our students are Navy command sponsored, with a normal tour of duty of three years. We have approximately 30 % turnover in student population each year due to military reassignment.
Our students are enriched by American and Italian cultures and have opportunities to travel throughout Europe for academic and athletic competitions. Our diverse American population is comprised of representatives from the 50 United States, as well as students from Germany and Norway. SMHS is an American high school in many ways, but is unique and different from the stateside schools as reflected in our extracurricular and special program offerings. Sigonella students reflect this uniqueness through their diversity and global viewpoint.
