Basics of Spartan Life
Because of our strong academic reputation, course offerings and magnet programs, many students choose to attend NSCHS who do not live in Sandy Springs.
You'll meet Spartans from both ends of Fulton County, as well as magnet students from neighboring DeKalb, and Cobb counties with whom we have a memo of understanding. This makes for an extremely diverse and talented student body.
Honors & Awards
We want to celebrate and
recognize your success in academics, citizenship, leadership, fine arts and athletics. We're proud of the local, regional, and national honors Spartans receive. While individual organizations and teams present awards and have
banquets- NSCHS faculty and
staff host special
school-wide recognition events.
Spartans are busy and involved in extracurricular activities as well as academics. Research shows this is a good thing- students who are involved tend to do better in both
and students are encouraged to participate in at least two.
Soon after the start of the school year, a
Club and Activities Fair is held showcasing all the clubs and activities students can join. Students simply sign up, provide their email and phone contact and then get started by attending meetings- often held before or after school.
