Due to the fact that Sparta is a small community, students are able to easily make friends and connect with people. If students ever have a problem, there is a good guidance counselor to talk to, as well as many teachers. Students are encouraged to reach their full potential. I do wish that Sparta offered more AP and honors classes, though.

Often times, I felt myself not being challenged or when a challenge occurred my teachers were less than helpful. Teachers often acted like students and spoke openly about other students grades and behavior. Some teachers graded the typical good students harder than the average or less than students. There were still some good things about this school like the school spirit (only present if the team was winning) and the activities offered.
I liked the clubs and assemblies, but I’d like to see more school spirit, less drama and fights, and a more accurate class rank scale.
