Sparta High School Reviews

The school has pretty average athetic programs. The wrestling program is the most prized in the school, but also the football programs has also picked up momentum. As far as academics, the variety of class availble is reasonable. There is a lot of opportunities for shop classes and in the last few years they have paired with local Tech college to provide a CNC machining program and a welding program. Recently before I graduated, the school started doing more of a hold your hand additude rather than challenging students and preparing them for college. This is okay-ish in my eyes because a large portion of the students go into trades and stay local. It is a safe school with good safety and trustable faculty. Overall the school is mediocre, but is slowly improving.

Our school provides an abundance of classes that allow college level advancement, AP courses, and online opportunities. We are a rural community, so the school body is very supportive when we're experiencing celebratory causes, like last year when the football team made it to the final four in playoffs for the very first time, or even when we're working hard to aid our faculty or peers. We have a lot of spunk among the diverse people groups in the high school. Whether a hick, jock, nerd, or gamer our school flits the lines of cliques and rages during homecoming season. Moreover, our principal is so passionate that he dances at assemblies, walks the halls spouting positivity and encouragement, and tutors students in math. Our school body and district is so beautiful and supportive. I love my school because our faculty works hard to promote inclusion and respect. We prioritize the Spartan Way which teaches us to be respectful, responsible, safe, and to give our best effort.
Sparta High school offers a variety of courses with well educated and inclusive teachers. Overall, my experience helped me grow as a student and as an individual.
