Message from Principal Stevens
It is my pleasure to welcome you to Spartanburg High School, home of the Vikings, where we exemplify a tradition of excellence. We have a history of being nationally recognized as a school that emphasizes excellence in all areas: academics, the arts, music, service, leadership, and athletics. It is truly an honor for me to serve as principal of such an outstanding high school.
High school is that unique period of time where within just three years students go from children running in the halls to young adults lining up to reach for their diplomas. Today, high school diplomas are the tickets to the rest of their adult lives.
I 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. Parents, together we have such a short time to prepare them for what lies beyond - let's do it together. <ul> <li>Please encourage your children to attend classes every day. <li>Encourage your children 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." <li>Encourage your children to put forth their best effort at school EVERY DAY. <li>Please insist that your children respect themselves, respect you, respect their teachers, and respect the tradition and purpose of Spartanburg High. </ul> 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. Our school vision and purpose make learning the focus of everyone who works at Spartanburg High School. Please feel free to call, email, or visit. We are here for your students and you.
