Sparta High School Ratings & Reviews
We moved here from Virginia in 2013 and quickly found out that my daughter had some catching up to do in Sparta Middle School. She adapted and then exceled in all her studies. When she got to the high school it was an even better success in both academics and outside the classroom. I cannot tell you how wonderful the teachers and staff are at the High School. They are truly committed to seeing your child succeed. We choose to live in Sparta for the schools and as my daughter nears graduation this year and has been accepted to many colleges, it has proven to be the best decision we could have made for her education.
My children have all graduated from SHS, all have gotten into their #1 choice of colleges and all are having great success in their college careers. SHS is very competitive, and colleges see that by the class rankings. I think the kids who complained in previous comments didn't put in any effort but expected to get by. I would highly recommend SHS and the Sparta community to anyone! With the exception of very few, the teachers are top notch and very willing to help every student succeed and the new principal is all about the kids.
My daughter has gotten a great education at Sparta High School. She is also into music and this school has an unbelievable music program. I would recommend Sparta High School to anyone.
As a student I feel like this school should be akin to a anvil on your back with a led pipe stuck to the heel of your shoe. The moment I got here when I moved it has pushed me to the ground, if you are sick for just a day your grades will plummet the entire semester, it bathes in pushing you in group projects you clearly have no interest in. The buses are a mess, my bus drove past me twice in the first half of the year. The teachers are either the best people ever or so bland you actually want to skip school just so you don't want to speak to them. This school also uses google classroom, so you better expect to do constant work during breaks at home.
I have 2 students that are recieving an excellent education as well as an experience.
