SPS Philosophy

  • The philosophy of the Suffolk Public Schools Athletic Department is to strive at all times to represent the highest ideals in life. Because of its high visibility, athletics has the unique opportunity to be a positive influence on the lives of everyone associated with our programs: student-athletes, other students, faculty, staff, alumni, and friends. The top priority will always be the student-athlete. The ultimate goal is to provide each student-athlete with the tools necessary to be successful in life.
