Spartanburg County School District No. 5 Reviews

Our 2 children were upset about attending new schools when we moved to SC in 2012. However, after meeting their peers, teachers, counselors, and principals our children were joyful and settled by the end of the first week. That joy has been consistently on their countenances, year after year, almost 8 years later.

To our children, District 5 schools have been one of the best highlights of living in Spartanburg County, SC. I can honestly say that throughout their secondary educational experience, time and time again, either a teacher, counselor, or principal took my children under his or her wing and mentored them. There has never been a time that my children were not treated with dignity and respect, and then some, while in the care of a District 5 School.

Now I have to say with the utmost honesty that through the years, I have witnessed this same treatment being extended to all students. District 5 just has a way of making every student feel special. We love District 5Schools!

I really enjoy going to Spartanburg County Schools. Iv'e always been encouraged by all my teachers to always try my best and to work hard. My teachers have always pushed me to be my best and to ask help if I needed it. Our schools provide excellent student resources. We have very involved sports programs through all age groups. We have wonderful principals and administrators. One thing I would like to see change is a heavier focus on the Arts programs at the the Middle schools and High school. The Arts program can sometimes be overshadowed. Another important issue that I would like to see some change is awareness of mental health, the effects of drugs and alcohol, and death. These are all issues that children and teenagers are unfortunately faced with but not always sure how to deal with.
It is very good. I am a sixth grader at Beech springs. I am going to Dr.Hill next year. I am classified as a middle schooler. I love D5. Its amazing. From the marching band to the football team, everything is awesome!
