Standley Lake High School is a public secondary school operated by Jefferson County School District R-1 in Westminster, Colorado, United States. The school is located near 104th Avenue and Wadsworth Boulevard and is named for nearby Standley Lake. The high school opened in 1988 and a new addition to the southeast corner was opened in 2002. Area rivalries include Pomona High School and Ralston Valley High School in Arvada, Colorado and Broomfield High School in Broomfield, Colorado. The school's male athletic teams include: Baseball, Basketball, Football, Swimming/Diving, Cross Country, Soccer, Golf, Wrestling, Hockey, Track, and Tennis. Female athletic teams include: Basketball, Cross Country, Golf, Gymnastics, Soccer, Softball, Swimming, Tennis, Track, and Volleyball.
The school made national headlines on January 27, 2014, after a 16-year-old student, Vincent Neff, set himself on fire inside of the cafeteria in an apparent suicide attempt, according to police. Neff initially survived the attempt, but suffered burns on 80 percent of his body, 40 percent of which were third degree, and eventually succumbed, dying of his injuries around 5:00 PM on Sunday, February 10, 2014 at an area hospital (many patients with such extensive burns, even in good contemporary care, ultimately do not survive due to shock, electrolyte imbalances and dehydration, and serious infection, or sepsis).
