Sparkman High School Reviews

The number one thing I loved about Sparkman was how diverse we were. Literally nobody was alone, their was always a group for somebody. Our pep rallies were always the best; the atmosphere of the battle of the classes were amazing. Even if we weren't winning, we'd always come and support our fellow Senators!
Review Sparkman High School
Sparkman is very diverse, and I love to attend there. You get to meet new people and learn something new everyday. We have tons of fun! Our school surprises everyone when it comes to school teams and spirit. I wouldn't want to go to school anywhere else.
As an involved student in Sparkman High School, I can confidently state how much of an impact it has had on my life. I have had the privilege of attending Girls' State, being the Student Government Association Vice President, and being an Editor-in-chief of the yearbook. Through all of these experiences, I have learned how to lead hundreds of students. I have been able to help change Sparkman, and be changed by it as well. I would like to see more technology be present. As an older school, Sparkman doesn't have the newest technology. If new technology were present throughout the school, more students will be engaged in school; thus providing more opportunities for students to thrive. Overall, Sparkman High School has been a place for me to thrive along with thousands of others.
