Sparkman has recently received a new football stadium with a turf track and will receive an auditorium! I love how Sparkman is renovating their facilities (realizing that they will eventually decay). The teachers, for the most part, are friendly and/or professional. The student body is nothing like in the movies(with the fights and bullies) as most people just ignore each other or get along. The arts programs are fantastic. Some rules are pointless though. 4/5 easily

Sparkman High School fosters an environment where dedicated educators, in partnership with parents and the community, work to support and challenge all students to become their best. Sparkman High School has a strong record of success and is, widely, recognized for preparing young men and women well for the challenges they face following graduation. The richness of our curriculum, the preparation of our faculty, and the above-average standardized test scores of our students are evidence of our distinction as one of the finest high schools in Alabama. With active parent involvement, strong community connections, and the support of our superintendent, Sparkman High School serves as a model for public education. The energy and enthusiasm of our teachers and students are impressive and we are proud of our accomplishments both, individually, and as a school. It is a privilege and honor to attend Sparkman High School! GO SENATORS!
Sparkman Highschool is a fantastic school when it comes to college prepardness. The extra curriculars are spectaular, specifically Medical Academy and the Photography program, both of which I have participated in. They bother offer amazing oppurtunities to their students that set them far above where others would be if they were interested in either of those specific fields. And not only that but I have heard amazing feedback about the band program and plenty of the sports. The only area where I could see improvement being needed would be in some of the core courses, math for example has been a let down for me for 2 of the 3 years I've been there. But nevertheless, I've been able to succeed and learn in all of the subjects I've been in.
