Sparta Township Public School District Reviews

This school has provided many opportunities for me to learn and grow as a person. It offers a wide range of classes, clubs, and other opportunities to explore my interests. It has flaws in its push for standardized tests, less than effective bullying prevention, and an unbalanced budget. Standards seem more important than the actual material in some classes, especially higher level classes. AP classes are forced to teach to the test, instead of allowing the class to learn in a way that works for them. Additionally, the bullying prevention system is flawed. Bullying is something that isn't easy to fix, but their biggest tactic is to wait it out until it solves itself. Finally, the stereotypical underfunded drama department is present. Our school musical, as amazing as it is, relies heavily on fundraising and donations. Thankfully, the community is supportive and it always has a wonderful turnout.The drama club is severely under-budgeted.

It was an okay experience. The school had some great courses and great classes depending on what you want to major in and can help you in certain aspects, however some teachers are not great in their subjects they are teaching. The teachers and staff can be very rude and the privacy there is slim to none. You can get a good education, but your mental health deteriorates during the end of your four years.
Overall a good experience and I feel lucky to have gone there. Students get along well with little to no bullying. Good, safe atmosphereMath departmt could use more teachers who know how to actually teach (less alternative path and tenured) so that so many students wouldn't need tutoring. (Mr. Dugan is the department's saving grace.) Extra curricular activities could use more monitoring so that cliques don't just take them over but maybe that is to be expected anywhere.
