Surrattsville High School or SHS is a public high school located in Clinton, Maryland and is a part of the Prince George's County Public School System in Prince George's County, Maryland.

Surrattsville was the town of Clinton's original name, taken from Mary Surratt and her family, who once owned the property on which the school now stands.


The Surrattsville Athletic program has enjoyed success in recent years. The boys' basketball team had a good season in 2010, led by senior Richard Harris, nephew of former Maryland standout Len Bias, after a terrible season in the previous year.

The baseball team reached the State Semifinals in 2010 before falling to Clear Spring.

Davin Meggett, son of former NFL player Dave Meggett, was part of a playoff appearance by the football team in 2007. The younger Meggett also played for the school baseball team. After leading the football team in the 2007 season, Tom Green left to be the football coach and athletic director Eleanor Roosevelt High School.

Surrattsville won the Maryland State Championship in 1962 and 1965, when it competed in the AA class, the largest at that time. The 1965 team defeated Allegheny HS, ranked number 3 in the nation and Parkville HS, ranked number 16 in back to back games to win the title. Each team had lost only once before losing to the Hornets. Robert Vaughn was the head coach of each state title team.
