Message From the Principal...

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year at GREEN Charter School Spartanburg!

The start of a new year is always refreshing as we get to start anew, with a clean slate. A new year brings new goals, new areas of focus for improvement, and an opportunity to further strengthen our relationships as we work together to always, in every decision that we make, put our GREEN KIDS FIRST!

I am honored to serve as GREEN Charter School Spartanburg’s principal for the 2022-2023 school year, my 19th in the field of education, and my 9th as a school administrator. Being a part of Team GREEN Spartanburg for the last 3 years and working to build our school community alongside you all has been a tremendous gift. I hope that all GREEN Spartanburg stakeholders will join me in our hopes that this year, our 4th together, will be the best year yet!
