Just think. The programming at one of our schools may be tailor made to fit your child’s unique talents and interests. In Spartanburg School District Seven, it is our belief that students are most successful when they are involved in programs that interest and motivate them. Though our students are assigned to schools based on their residential address, they may apply to a school with a certain focus, a school with a unique program, or another school within the district.
