A Message from Mr. Jones

  • Welcome to Spartanburg High School, Home of the Vikings!

    Vance Jones I am thrilled that you have chosen to view our school’s website to learn more about the amazing students, staff, and programs we have to offer. Spartanburg High School has a reputation of excellence and we will continue to strive to become the best. U.S. News & World Reports recently named our school among the top 12% of all high schools in the country for 2019. We were also named as one of the "Most Challenging High Schools in the Country."

    Thank you Spartanburg for the investment that you have made into our new facility and our students. We embark upon a new school year with great energy and anticipation of new opportunities that will enhance our instructional program and school community as a whole.

    As you peruse our website, you will notice that our students and staff are dedicated to excelling in academics, arts, and athletics. Our school community is dedicated to providing our students with a well-rounded educational experience. Our mission is to inspire and equip our students for college and career and for meaningful lives of leadership and service as world citizens.

    We encourage you to visit our beautiful school and see that we are a school committed to children. SHS aims to develop leadership skills, social and emotional skills, and academic skills to prepare students for success not only in high school, but also in college, career, armed services, relationships, and life-long learning.  All of this is made possible by strong partnerships that are developed with our parents and the community as a whole.


    Proud Principal,

    Vance Jones
