Message from the Principal

{title}
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year. We believe that parents want and need to be involved in their children’s education and that this communication leads to a happier and more successful school experience. Please encourage your children to attend classes every day. Encourage them to read the chapters, do the homework, write the paper, finish the project and please be wary of mumblings from your teenagers like, “I don’t have any homework.” Encourage your children to put forth their best effort at school EVERY DAY. Please insist that your children respect themselves, respect you, respect their teachers, and respect the tradition and purpose of Spartanburg High. And, in turn, we promise you that we, too, will continue to work with your children 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.
