Message from Principal Stevens
Spartanburg High School has a long history of excellence. SHS has always and will continue to be an institution of teaching and learning, in an environment where all students have the opportunity to develop and excel academically, athletically, emotionally and socially. I am certain that the actions of students and staff during the 2012-13 school year will continue to add to this tradition.
