Welcome to Southeast Polk High School!

SteffenI’m John Steffen, an assistant principal at Southeast Polk High School. My goal is to help your children be successful as both – students and as young adults. My hope is that each student will earn more than just a diploma, but also take away an experience that is unique and allows them to be anyone they choose.

The high school has more than 2,000 students, along with more than 100 staff.  Some of my duties include supervision of students, coordinator of the Special Education and 504 Plan Programs, and I’m a member of our Student Assistance Team, among others.

I consider communication a key to working with students and their parents, so I try to communicate with you as much as possible. We have other venues of communication through email, phone calls, or Infinite Campus. If there is anything I can do to help you or your child, please let me know. I believe we all have a role in helping our kids succeed and communication is an essential piece of the process.
