State Report Card

State and federal laws require public schools to release report cards to the public each year. This year, the report card has been updated to 

reflect changes in reporting directed by the SC Education Oversight Committee. Schools will not be rated for state accountability purposes until 

Fall 2017 when the state will transition to a single accountability system. The following reports student performance in school year 2014-15.

     High Point Academy (HPA) opened its doors in August 2014 in Spartanburg, South 

Carolina as a part of the South Carolina Public Charter School District.  High Point Academy 

is a community-centered school built on the principles of honor, integrity, and service 

where academic excellence, STEM education, fine arts, and a project based, applied 

learning style of instruction produces an educational environment rich in creativity, 

innovation, and achievement.  At the heart of the educational mission is the growth and 

shaping of tomorrow’s leaders, challenging them to dream, deliver, and desire success.  

Teachers use innovative ways to encourage student learning through a hands-on approach 

along with community service projects.  Student progress is monitored through a variety of 

sources, including the iReady Program, in order to accommodate individual student needs. 

HPA offers an extended day for all students, which includes a free after school program.      

HPA serves students in Spartanburg and surrounding areas.  There are approximately 408 

students in grades kindergarten through ninth during the 2014-2015 school year.  Of those 

students, 71% are White, 20% are African American, and 7% are two or more races.  There 

are Asian, Hispanic, and Native Hawaiian or Other Pacific Islander students in the school

but these all combine to comprise 2% of the population.  Of the school population, 

approximately 49% quality for free and reduced lunch.       HPA consist of 3 kindergarten 

teachers, 2 first grade teachers, 2 second grade teachers, 2 third grade teachers, 1 fourth 

grade teacher, 2 fifth grade teachers, 6 middle/high school teachers, 8 special area 

teachers, 3 resource teachers, 2 assistant principals (one part time and one full time), and 

1 principal. Many of the teachers have received a master’s degree or are currently working 

on a higher degree. There are several teachers who are SAFE-T and mentor certified within 

the building.  Teachers are regularly sent to workshops and conferences in efforts to 

continue their education. HPA will extend to include tenth grade in the 2015-2016 school 

year.       High Point Academy achieved many things in it’s inaugural year. We will continue 

to inspire and shape our learners to become the leaders of tomorrow.
