Sebastian River High School is a co-educational International Baccalaureate high school. It opened August 1994 and was ranked 34th by Newsweek's 1,000 top U.S. High schools.[3] The school is operated by the Indian River County School District.

Campus[edit]

Situated on 6.5 acres (2.6 ha) of land, Sebastian River High School is constructed around a central courtyard. Its facilities include a 3000-seat sports stadium, a 1060-seat auditorium, a 1680-seat gymnasium, a state-of-the-art television studio,[4] an aqua lab, high-tech vocational labs, a volleyball field, three practice fields, a baseball field, a softball field, four tennis courts, four basketball courts, a wrestling room, and a cross-country track and field course. It also has 2 separate classroom buildings for the Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps (JROTC). In 2002, a new freshman wing, the V Wing, was added, bringing the number of classrooms to over 140 and making Sebastian River High School the second largest high school in Indian River County. The V Wing, however, does contain classrooms for students in other classes. For this reason, a new Freshman Learning Center was constructed in 2010, housing only freshman students.

Sports and extracurricular activities[edit]

Sebastian has many different activities for the student body, available to all students who earn a 2.0 grade point average or higher in their studies.

Sebastian River High School is also home to the first high school girl's varsity Rugby team in the United States. The team won the Florida High School Girls Rugby State Championship in 2011 and the USA Rugby High School Southeastern Championship in 2012.


Sports programs offered by the school include wrestling, American football, Soccer, Baseball, Lacrosse, track and field, basketball, tennis, cross country, rowing, volleyball, softball, and golf, among others.

There are numerous student-run clubs whose purpose is not related to sports, including a drama club, Navy JROTC, Mu Alpha Theta chapter, art club, yearbook club, a Future Business Leaders of America chapter, Interact club, debate club, and many others.
