We also offer a foreign language to students beginning in kindergarten and offer high school credit courses to our 8th graders in Algebra, Geometry, and English. We have also implemented a high school with a grade being added each year until the first graduating class in 2025. Spartanburg Prep's educational philosophy supports the premise that all teachers shall infuse critical thinking into their instruction at all levels, and in all subjects, during each and every instructional day. Spartanburg Prep has implemented the "Inquiry Based" approach to instruction, and allows students to be active learners. By utilizing research and evidence-based approaches to education, we continuously strive to improve teacher effectiveness, higher student achievement and improved school climate.
We understand the importance of ensuring students have the skills to be able to effectively navigate the world. To address World Class Skills, we allow numerous opportunities for students to collaborate and encourage creativity in all students. Our classrooms embody twenty-first century learning in action. We encourage technology to be used to enhance instruction and our inquiry based approach encourages students to think critically and engage in problem solving individually and collaboratively. Communication is also a key component of helping students develop World Class Skills and we offer students several opportunities to develop their communication skills such as the school morning announcements, class project presentations, school leadership opportunities, Student Council, and Beta Club.
