All the teachers at Sparks Middle School are amazing and they really care about your sucess towards graduation and CST. This school is really good becuase of the staff like Kawakami,Shults sadly is leaving for HLPTA President,Mr.Tramison,V-Lowe,Kim, Beasley, Palomino, Garcia and Nisuis. They really have good electives and activities like Renaissance and Leadership and the good thing is every year or every year they have a fair with ROLLERCOASTERS yes but small ones. And for those who said that Miller he left he is back and is the Principal. I REALLY RECOMMEND THIS SCHOOL IN THIS PART OF THE DISTRICT STAY AWAY FROM SIERRA VISTA MIDDLE SCHOOL IF YOU COMPARE THEM SPARKS MIDDLE SCHOOL HAS WAY BETTER AND HIGHER SCORES THAN SIERRA VISTA MIDDLE SCHOOL SINCERELEY ANOYMOUS

I am going to be a student in Sparks Middle School and I can already tell IT IS a great school. I recently went on my little fieldtrip/visit to this school and it is AMAZING. They have very fun and important electives. Plus they have many fun activities planned for the students like fairs (yes with actual rollercoasters), lunch competitions, spirit days (e.g. super hero day: wear clothing with superheros) and MUCH MORE! Also, the teachers are really well. I recommend this school to EVERYONE!!!

I love this school. I am a student currently attending and I love everything about it. I am on the cross-country team and volleyball team. I am in leadership and band and in yearbook. I also have a 4.0 GPA. I love this school and always will. Although I am sad that Mr.Miller left because he was a great leadership teacher, we have lots of other good teachers.

I was a student at this school, they worked extra hard to encourage students to inprove, exceed expectations, and try their hardest. plus, I've never even heard of schools do some of the great things that Sparks does for its students, such as concerts and dirt bike stunt performances.

I think this is an 'ok' school. The administration, I beleive, is trying its best to motivate the students to learn. The reason of the bad API is mainly because of the students.

Don't see a great deal of communication between insructors and administation. Admin. Will set a plan to complete (that require both admin and teachers participation)that instructors are unaware of. Staff will not identify problems aggressively enough. Staff do not provide aggresive enough solutions to problems(especially without parental involvement). Also, not enough resources available to assist children that experience a medium degree of difficulty. However, there are a few individuals who really do care about the children. These people will make an indivual extra effort to assist the children and parents. These individuals (primarily teachers)are responsable for any positive attributes and success of this school.
