Student, Spartanburg High School, Class of 2018,
Spartanburg High School is not just a school. It's not a place that kids dread attending every day. It's not a place of simply learning facts to forget them the next year. Spartanburg High School is a community of people: teachers, administrators, students, and parents that form a cohesive unit focused on bettering the lives of the students in all aspects. This being said, the teachers cannot be expected to change lives simply by teaching material; students must play their part in developing themselves as well. A perfect student does not exist. It is a guarantee that some may come close, but as a student myself I know that it is impossible to excel in every class, every extra-curricular, and every sport. Students do have to help teachers along in the process of maturing and gaining knowledge though. A few key characteristics in a student can help them thrive at Spartanburg High School. Determination is a huge factor: kids must be determined to learn so that they may better their opportunities in life. Hard-working and driven are two more factors that students that attend Spartanburg High should have: you get out what you put in is a 100% true statement--hard working students are better students. Curious and persistent learners who have a thirst for knowledge will also thrive at Spartanburg High School where there are hundreds of different classes to pursue all kinds of different interests. Most importantly though, goal-setters and go-getters are the students that should attend Spartanburg High School: kids who can set goals and relentlessly work towards them are the kind that will find success at Spartanburg High School.
