“To Inspire and Equip.” During this academic year you’ll hear those words time and again throughout the District. With a new Mission, Vision and Values statement in hand, we’re excited about advancing our goal to be the District of choice in Spartanburg and we are committed in our focus to inspire and equip our students for meaningful lives of leadership and service as world citizens.

From our nationally recognized 1:1 technology initiative called Seven Ignites to the increasingly strong outcomes of our graduating seniors – the cumulative effect of all that we do shines in the countless success stories of our children, the impressive contributions of our teachers and staff and the continued support of a community that has long prized excellence in education. With a momentous year ahead, be sure to follow us on Facebook and Twitter and keep an eye on the District 7 website for timely news and information.
