Senior Slideshow

Discovery Sophomore Lily Zhang Named the 2022 South Carolina Stockholm Junior Water Prize (SJWP) State Winner

The SJWP is the world’s most prestigious award presented to a high school student for a water-research project. The Water Environment Federation (WEF) has coordinated the U.S. competition since its inception in 1997 and partners closely with their Member Associations (MAs) to execute the program. The competition among state winners is held in June in order to send the national winner to the international competition in late August. It is open to public, private, or independent high school students in grades 9-12 who have reached the age of 15 by Aug. 1 of the competition year and have conducted water-related science projects. Judging criteria are the same as the international competition and include ratings for relevance, methodology, subject knowledge, practical skills, creativity and paper/presentation. The Water Environment Association of South Carolina has selected Lily Zhang as the state winner and is fully sponsoring her travel to the national SJWP competition at the Colorado School of Mines in Denver, Colorado from June 16-19, 2022. Lily will be submitting her research paper and presenting her research on “The Individual and Combined Effects of Microplastics
and Acetominophen on the Heart Rate and Survival Daphnia magna.” Congratulations to Lily and her research teacher, Dr. Michelle Wyatt!

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.
