    Health & Safety: Bullying does not seem to be an issue, however, the school is very large so parents must stay engaged to know what is going on with their child, you can get lost in the numbers.

    Health & Safety: The deputies survey the school regularly to make sure everything is in order. The administration is always on call in case of emergencies. I always feel safe at Sparkman. We practice safety procedures and drills regularly in order to stay up to date and that makes me feel more confident in case something were to happen.

    Extracurriculars: I am involved in several clubs at Sparkman. Most students have joined at least one club or sports team. SGA has been a great opportunity for me because it helped me meet new people I wouldn't have otherwise met and it was a lot of fun to help plan and prepare school functions.
