The Power of Partnership
Spartanburg School District 7 is a small urban school district located in the heart of Upstate South Carolina. District 7 is a majority-minority district with a poverty index nearing 80 percent, a graduation rate of 86 percent, and a post-secondary enrollment rate that averages over 84 percent each year. It’s often said, the success and vitality of District 7 and the City of Spartanburg are inextricably bound together. In fact, our work with a broad range of community partners is rooted in that very recognition of connectivity and serves as a catalyst in our shared commitment to quality education from cradle to career.
Guided by our mission to inspire and equip our students for meaningful lives of leadership and service, we continue to build strong partnerships both locally and further afield. Thanks to the support of a broad array of non-profit and civic organizations in the Upstate, we're tapping into exciting grant opportunities, mentoring initiatives and collaborative programs. We know it takes a village to raise a healthy child and our relationships with these partners is a critical component of the work that we do.
