Spartanburg County School District No. 5 Reviews

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!
I have had a great experience in District 5 schools. The teachers are good, I feel like they prepare you for your next grade level and when you reach high school they prpaee you for college. All of the facilities are diverse and pretty clean. Sports are important and very successful middle school through high school. Also, our academics are excellent we have students that are in honors, AP, and dual credit classes. I am in in all three types of classes and I feel well prepared for my college experience.
