Sparta Township Public School District Reviews

Overall, I have had a good experience in the Sparta Township School District, I have met a lot of incredible people and made great memories and friendships with the people here. The academics are good, but the math department could be improved. Considering the fact that the Sparta puts a very large emphasis on athletics, the music department at Sparta is incredible and is full of very talented kids. The only major issue at Sparta is that it is not diverse, as Sparta is a predominantly white town.

I think Sparta schools did a very good job of preparing me for college and my life beyond schooling. In elementary and middle school I had many teachers that cared about me as a student and about me personally. When I entered high school, the same could be said. I was able to take classes that interested me to help give me a sense of what I would like to study in college. And thanks to Sparta High School and my dedicated teachers, I was accepted into a great university.
Extremely proud and very fortunate to attend such a well rounded school district.
Our school is second to none and we are rates number one in Sussex County, NJ.
I have had the fortunate opportunity to be raised in a dynamic community which is educational driven and family oriented. The tools given to the student body is like no other. Our school strives to a commitment of excellence like no other. When comparing schools outside of Sparta we are considered to be a committed school of excellence.
