Sparta middle school is not a place where your average tenn should grow up. Sparta is little town with a population towering over 8000 and there is a lot of farms. When you think of this you think everyone is friends with everyone or somewhat close and there is no discrimination between students. But I strongly disagree. There are so calle snapulars (so called popular kids) that are ruining everyone elses time at school. Plus, students don't care for one another. My child is new to the school and thinks it is very different from where we were before and says that students here don't even now a person's name who sits next to them every single day. The teachers and staff are somewhat ok. They could be more involved though with students.
