Message from the Principal

{title}
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.

August 2017 Eclipse - Are you Ready?

August 2017 Eclipse - Are you Ready?
The clock is counting down to the 2017 Solar Eclipse. Spartanburg County and parts of surrounding counties will be in the path of totality for this awe-inspiring eclipse of the Sun on August 21, 2017. The rest of the Eastern United States will see only a partial eclipse. This spectacular event will engulf Spartanburg at 2:39PM (EST) in a dark shadow for around two minutes, giving observers a once in a lifetime celestial experience!
A total solar eclipse is when the Sun is covered entirely by the Moon, the sky deeply darkens, the temperature cools, and the Sun’s corona becomes visible. To find out the exact time of the start and end of the eclipse and totality for your specific area, use the following resource:NASA Eclipse 2017
To help you prepare your students (and yourself) for this once-in-a-lifetime experience, Spartanburg County Schools is happy to share these resources. Read More
