Spring Valley High School STEM Magnet School Named Magnet School of Distinction by Magnet Schools of America
Spring Valley High School has been named a National Magnet School of Distinction by Magnet Schools of America, the national association for magnet and theme-based schools.
Spring Valley High School’s magnet programs, Discovery and Explorations, seek to provide our students with an innovative, academically challenging experience centered on rigorous mathematics and science education through unique, student-centered research and internship opportunities. Our educators strive to establish meaningful relationships with each student and family, set consistently high expectations for all learners, empower each student with the tools to reach his/her full potential, and continuously inspire exploration, discovery and creativity in our students. Our vision is to develop a well-rounded scholar who has the ability to use scientific inquiry, mathematical tools, and twenty-first century technology skills to succeed and solve problems in our rapidly changing world. Discovery and Explorations will challenge students to embrace diversity and become culturally responsible, caring citizens in the global community.
Dr. Michelle Wyatt and Mr. Jeff Temoney will be recognized and receive a National Magnet School of Distinction Award on behalf of the school during an awards ceremony held at Magnet Schools of America’s 39th National Conference hosted by Clark County School District in Clark County, Nevada, April 18-22, 2022.
To receive a national merit award, members of Magnet Schools of America must submit a detailed application that is scored by a panel of educators. These schools are judged and scored on their demonstrated ability to raise student academic achievement, promote racial and socioeconomic diversity, provide integrated curricula and instruction, and create strong family and community partnerships that enhance the school’s magnet theme.

Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)-What is FAFSA and Why Completed FAFSA?
Richland Two sent out an update for employees and parents with information on the district’s updated isolation and quarantine procedures for schools released by S.C. DHEC on December 31, 2021. We encourage you to thoroughly review this information by looking at the Covid-19 Update Newsletter. One important point to note in this update is related to students having to quarantine if they are identified as a close contact. The below statement from this update outlines that if you are 16 years of age or older, you must have the initial vaccination series and the booster to avoid having to quarantine if considered a close contact. Please review the Covid-19 Update Newsletter for complete details about this and other changes.
- To avoid quarantine when identified as a close contact you must have received the vaccine doses you’re eligible for (completed initial vaccination series and booster for ages 16 and up, or completed initial vaccination series for ages 5-15).
Questions about your child being Covid-19 positive or is a close contact of someone who is Covid-19 positive, please contact our school nurse Elisabeth Walter at email@example.com or by calling the Health Room at ext. 69092
