Open Quote Just read the review about testing every child before the child is admitted to the school. The review also stated that because of this, the school is selecting who will and will not be admitted.

While Spartanburg Prep does test the student, the test is used to determine grade placement. All students are admitted to Spartanburg Prep- ALL. Close Quote

Open Quote Best school in Spartanburg County. Low teacher to student ratios and high parent engagement make this school a consistent top performer in the state!! Close Quote

Open Quote It is a charter public school, but you gain a spot via lottery. Prior to entrance your child will be tested and enrollment will depend on the results. Thus, the school unnaturally raises its rating by selecting the best of the best. Also, during the school year lesser students may be forced out. The school does not like underachieving students and tries to get rid of them as quickly as possible so that it's rating doesn't suffer. In addition, the school does not have “Horizon” and AP Honors classes. The level of teaching is not better than other public schools. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
