Smallville High School, or Smallville High for short, is Smallville's local high school for grades 9-12. All students are required to complete 30 hours of community service.[1]

Clark Kent attended Smallville High from 2001 to 2005 with his close friends Pete Ross, Chloe Sullivan and Lana Lang. Clark once ran for Class President for the 2002/2003 school year, but lost the election soundly to fellow student Paul Chan, who won despite being injured and absent. Chloe's cousin Lois Lane briefly attended as a senior student in 2004 to gather study points for entering Metropolis University.

The varsity football team is the Smallville Crows, and the school colors are goldenrod and red. The school football field, the Arnold Stadium, is named after famed coach Walt Arnold.

The Smallville High marquee was struck by a meteor in the May 2005 meteor shower that struck Smallville.

Smallville High held a five-year reunion in 2010, that was attended by Suzanne Capra, Maddie Haroldhaus, Greg Arkin, Clark and Lois and many other alumni.

Smallville Scarecrow

Clark Kent is chosen as the Scarecrow

Main Article: Scarecrow

The Scarecrow is a traditional Homecoming week prank in which Smallville High senior football players choose a male freshman which they take into the cornfields, strip him down to his underwear, paint a red S on his chest, and hang him on a post as a scarecrow. Jeremy Creek and Clark Kent were both chosen as Scarecrows.

Lois Lane as the scarecrow

In an attempt to send a message to Clark a degenerated clone of Lex Luthor kidnaps Lois Lane and deliberately strings her up as a scarecrow with a red 'S' painted on her shirt in the exact same field the original Lex Luthor had found and rescued Clark.

Dunk Tank

Early each year, a chosen student sits above a dunk tank after classes where other students may attempt to dunk him/her by hitting the target with a football passed out by a member of the football team. Lana Lang and Clark Kent have both been in the dunk tank (Facade). Clark was about to dunk Lana, and Lois managed to dunk Clark.

Alternate realities


Greg Arkin, Justin Gaines and Jodi Melville chased by Clark Luthor.

On Earth-2 Smallvile High was attacked on the graduation day of 2005 by Clark Luthor who murdered several meteor infected people including Justin Gaines, Jodi Melville and Greg Arkin.
