Superintendent's Message

Dear Spartanburg School District Two Family,

Welcome to your District’s website. Our Board of Trustees, faculty, staff and administration are committed to providing exceptional opportunities that will unlock the full potential of every student. Our schools provide a caring and safe environment coupled with a rigorous and relevant curriculum that prepare students for tomorrow’s world. We believe that relationships are the foundation upon which every student’sMr. Lance Radford, Superintendent academic success is built. Our website is designed to support communication among all stakeholders in order to maximize those relationships. I invite you to visit this site often to keep abreast of school happenings and upcoming events as well as accessing secure links to information about your student throughout the year.

It is my honor and privilege to serve as the superintendent of Spartanburg School District Two. I am humbled by the warm welcome, support and enthusiasm the community has shown during my transition, and I look forward to the coming year. It is clear to me that we have a culture of relationship building within each school in our district. Each school supports a climate of academic success by responding to students as unique individuals with specific needs and goals.

Our core principle, Students First, drives our mission; and teamwork permeates the district at every level. For generations, our schools and community have worked to provide the highest quality education for all students. Our tradition of excellence fosters a sense of pride for our past accomplishments and fuels the determination to reach even higher. The Profile of the South Carolina Graduate is a framework that provides structure for the life skills and practices our students need to become accomplished adults in the 21st century. We embrace this framework to educate our students to the highest levels using innovative and research based practices. Students First is our unique way of applying the framework to meet the needs and goals of the individual students in their academic, art and athletic endeavors.

The upstate of South Carolina continues to grow at an impressive rate. The high tech companies that have settled here depend upon a workforce that has the skills to meet the demands within those industries. In Spartanburg District Two, we have an expectation that our students will graduate with world-class knowledge, world-class skills and the life and career characteristics needed to meet the challenges of an ever-changing landscape. We have a responsibility to our children, and future generations, to guide them to be successful in their post-graduation endeavors. As a result, this is a community where people want to live, work and raise their families. We will continue to strive to make Spartanburg Two the “go to” district for families in the Upstate and those looking for a new place to call home.

I would like to extend my personal invitation to all parents and community members to partner with us in making our schools the best they can be. We value your input and encourage your involvement. Contact your school or the District Office to volunteer or to visit. I encourage you to attend events and get involved. Together we will make Spartanburg District Two the flagship of the Upstate!

Lance Radford

Sincerely, Lance Radford


Superintendent
