Sparta Area Schools Reviews

I have attended three high schools, I have been at Sparta since my junior year and the past two years have been awesome. The administration and counselors do everything they can to personalize your experiences and help the school be right for you. They keep the cafeteria open all morning until after second lunch so you can get snacks and drinks in between classes which is a life saver if you missed breakfast and need something to hold you over through the first 5 hours of the day. The teachers are incredible and they truly care about you, and will go out of their ways to help every student. Great school over all.

I honestly believe the Sparta schools are great. They have teachers that connect and help with the students. There has never been a time where I felt like I didn't have any help available to me. I love the sense of family the school has, everyone knows eachother and it's great. I enjoy the extra curricular courses available to me. I have been a band student and a marching band student. There I feel like I am a part of something bigger and I have made many friends. Sparta may not have a bunch of money, but they do well with what they have. Overall nice teachers, nice courses, good people, and a great experience.
The group of teachers at Sparta schools are a really great group of teachers. They care about the students and what we have to say. They also care about how well we do, and don't hesitate to give extra help to students that need it. I feel that Sparta schools is a great community also, I felt safe and involved with during my entire schooling in Sparta. Many sports teams have also made me feel like a family in Sparta. All these things have taught me many life skills that I will carry throughout my future.
