School Information

 

Are you discouraged or frustrated by your current school experience?

Do you want more control over what you learn and how you learn it?

Are you naturally curious, inquisitive, self-motivated, independent, creative and self-disciplined?

Did you answer yes to any of these questions?

Perhaps, Sparta High Point School is for you.

  • Sparta High Point School will provide the district's students with educational choice, innovation and diversity of programming options.
  • Sparta High Point School will create a dynamic learning environment tailored to meet students' diverse learning needs.
  • The school's programming will be supported by educational research that promotes more engaging, inquiry-based modes of learning.
  • The program will implement a learning community model that supports relationships that will enhance the learning process.
