My experience with Sparta Senior High School was absolutely incredible! I was dual enrolled with the high school and a home schooling program. I was enrolled in every music class available at Sparta high school, including the jazz band, concert band, wind ensemble, choir, percussion chamber ensemble, marching band and drum-line. I performed in multiple music competitions and concerts with the school and I won first place one year and second place one year in the duets portion of the Sparta area "Spartan Idol" hosted by the school. I was able to use the excellent musical education at Sparta to apply to the college where I acquired my associates degree.

My experience at Sparta High school was overall very good. I participated in soccer, running, band, marching band, and college preparation and dual enrollment. I was near the top of my class during my four years and at graduation. I was proud of my grades and my reputation with teachers and peers. Due to personal circumstance, however, I struggled during my senior year. Most of my teachers were very understanding and helpful. Administration was different though; I felt a lack of understanding or helpfulness with administration. I felt that I was judged negatively and my mental illness was not take seriously by certain counselors. It was not terribly detrimental to my well-being, but there could have been more support or better psychological assistance provided.
Sparta Senior High School is a great place to go to school. Our School is safe and people are cared for. It doesn't matter what friend group your in because everyone talks to each other. One of the best things about Sparta is our spirit. Out of all of the schools i have seen or been to, Sparta knows how to cheer and have fun. Homecoming is a big deal at Sparta. There is so much to do in preparation. There's two parades, float building, mock rock, many games we play all day trying to earn points for our grade to win the red apple, and there's spirit week. There is also good academics and many ways to get help if you need it. Teachers care a lot about each student and tries to help them succeed in any way they can.
