The South Ripley Community supports our school district in many ways. We have received generous grants from the Tyson Versailles Fund, Ripley County EcO15 and the Rising Sun Regional Foundation to name a few. These grants have helped us in many ways, but in particular with our 1:1 Technology Initiative. We partner with the Town of Versailles to provide a School Resource Officer and have a great relationship with the South Ripley Ministerial Association. Our local businesses and civic organizations support our graduates by awarding multiple scholarships each spring and support our extracurricular programs through advertising opportunities. Our local farmers partner with our FFA organization to provide multiple opportunities for our students. Our school is a big part of our community and the community is very important to the success of our schools.

We have a comprehensive list of extracurricular activities to which students can belong including plays, publications, videography and more. We offer a large number of interscholastic athletic teams with the recent additions of swimming and bowling. We have been recognized as a Champions Together School by the IHSAA for our work with Special Olympics and offer multiple opportunities in our music department. We prepare our students for college and careers through our multiple dual credit courses and a strong partnership with the Southeastern Career Center.
