Message from the Principal

It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2017-18 school year. We believe that parents want and need to be involved in their child’s education and that this communication leads to a happier and more successful school experience. Please encourage your student to put forth his/her best effort at school EACH DAY. Please insist that your child respect themselves, respect you, respect their teachers, and respect the tradition and purpose of Spartanburg High School. And, in turn, we promise you that we, too, will continue to work with your child to ensure they receive the guidance and direction they need to stay on the right track. All children can learn and will do their personal best if given the right conditions for learning.
Our school mission is to INSPIRE and EQUIP. Together, we can help our students achieve far beyond their wildest dreams. Please feel free to call, email, or visit.

This program offers students the opportunity to become involved in simulated local, state, and national government by participating in activities including conducting campaigns, making impromptu speeches, and running for office. Interested students must have the desire and willingness to actively participate in these activities.
