At Spalding High School, I am currently enjoying my time here, but there are a few things I would like to see change. For one, there is not enough school spirit. I love being involved with my class and other people. High School should be a place where you can not only learn, but make long lasting memories. Lastly, I wish teachers would build relationships with their students (on a professional level of course). I feel like teachers should actually know their students. I only want to see my high school change for the better.

Good school with lots of available AP classes, and differing dual enroll options. Caters very well to gifted and remedial students, but tends to fall flat for regular classes. New added curriculum for the county falls flat on student based learning and teacher individuality, and as a result AP classes and dual enrollment have increased. Offers a variety of sports and clubs, although the schools athletic awards tend to fall flat.
As a student, I have enjoyed my time at Spalding High. The environment is great, and teachers and admins are very helpful. The student body for each class is great, but the younger classes (freshman and sophomores) ruin some of the atmosphere for the upperclassmen.
