to District Five Schools of Spartanburg County! Our district has a rich heritage of excellence in every aspect of
educational and extra-curricular endeavor. We are one of the top performing
districts in the southeastern U.S. in academic achievements, as well as
programs in the arts, leadership, choice magnet programs, technology and
excellence is validated by ratings from federal and state accountability
systems, and also from AdvancED, the international academic accrediting agency.
That continued excellence is also the reason we are one of the fastest growing
districts in the state of South Carolina. Families move into our community because of the high quality of our
schools. Our district is being rapidly transformed through the presence, and
arrival of many large international corporations, the international airport,
the world class parks and recreational facilities, and exceptional
neighborhoods. We are proud to be the
brightest fabric woven through this vibrant international tapestry, and are
committed to serving children and their families in world class schools. With the influx of major high tech
manufacturing and multi-national retail tourist destinations, it is an exciting
time as we watch our area change daily.
academic programs offer students the opportunity to not only earn a diploma
from one of the finest high schools in the country, but also earn college
credit through our nationally recognized Advanced Placement program or dual
credit through local colleges and universities. We offer a myriad of options
from virtual learning, to placement on a college campus beginning as early as
the freshman year in high school.
Five remains dedicated to its focus on educational excellence. As we aim to meet the SC Profile of the graduate, we want to produce
knowledgeable citizens who will energize and build our economy. Our graduates
excel in the skills needed to succeed: written and oral communication,
creativity, critical thinking, problem solving, entrepreneurialism,
collaboration, initiative, and adaptability. Each day, we strive to be the best
we can be, knowing education is the greatest investment we can make in our
children. It will, indeed, open doors of opportunity for each of them.
District Five is where excellence resides!
