The U.S. Army has announced two Discovery 9th grade teams, “Simply Southern Scientists” and “EnviroCom,” from Spring Valley High School as the 1st and 2nd place state winners, respectively, in the 14th annual eCYBERMISSION competition – a STEM initiative offered by the U.S. Army Educational Outreach Program (AEOP). Each first and second place team member will be awarded $1000 or $500 in U.S. EE Savings Bonds, maturity value, respectively, for being a state winner.  

These teams worked together with their team advisor, Dr. Michelle Wyatt, to design projects focusing on biodiesel fuel blends (Simply Southern Scientists–Elizabeth “Evie” Bickel, Erin Blalock, and Sreya Varanasi) and building a prototype hydroelectric generator to harness the energy derived from rainwater (EnviroCom–Elizabeth Dillon, Sydney Hannibal, and Gillian Patton). 
eCYBERMISSION, sponsored by the U.S. Army and administered by the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), is a web-based STEM competition that is free to students and designed to help build students’ interest and knowledge in STEM. Students in grades six through nine are challenged with developing a solution to a real-world problem in their local community. Students compete on state, regional, and national levels for monetary awards, with national winning teams receiving up to $9,000 in U.S. EE Savings Bonds, maturity value.  Through the eCYBERMISSION website, Simply Southern Scientists and EnviroCom created a mission folder—the official write-up of their project— which requires students to work through all steps of scientific practices before submitting to be evaluated and scored by a panel of virtual judges.

Congratulations to Miss Vinita Cheepurupalli

Congratulations to Miss Vinita Cheepurupalli for winning first place on her individual website entitled Penicillin: The Unexpected Encounter of a Miracle Drug at this year's National History Day Competition in South Carolina. 

Each fall, over half a million students nationwide begin the year-long National History Day program, competing in a series of history contests in their local schools, regions and affiliates. The top students in each category are selected for participation in the national contest.  Participating students choose their own topics of study and research from original sources based on the theme: Exploration, Encounter and Exchange in History. National History Day students research historic documents and artifacts, conduct oral histories, search the Internet for information on their topics and travel to historic sites. They present their work in a variety of ways, by creating exhibits, documentaries, performances, websites or historical research paper.

Vinita won first place at both the state and regional NHD competition. The national annual Kenneth E. Behring National History Day contest will be held in University of Maryland from June 12-16.

Spring Valley Named one of America's Most Academically Challenging High Schools By The Washington Post

For the third year of the past four, Spring Valley High School has been named by The Washington Post as one of America’s Most Challenging High Schools in the nation. According to the Post, “America's Most Challenging High Schools ranks schools through an index formula that's a simple ratio: the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school each year, divided by the number of seniors who graduated that year. A ratio of 1.000 means the school had as many tests as graduates.” Of approximately 27,000 U.S. high schools, fewer than 7 percent qualified for this recognition, and Spring Valley is one of only 13 South Carolina schools to make the list.

With its offering of 21 Advanced Placement courses, Spring Valley High School’s AP program is one of the most comprehensive in South Carolina.  In 2015, 360 students were enrolled in at least one AP course. As a result of the 657 tests that were administered, 81% of students scored a 3 or higher. These outcomes should be credited to the hard work by our students and faculty.

Jaelen Josey Memorial Scholarship

This scholarship was established in memory of Jaelen Isaiah Josey. Jaelen was a 2015 graduate of the Explorations Magnet program at Spring Valley High School. At the time of his tragic death, Jaelen was a freshman majoring in engineering at the University of South Carolina in Columbia. The family has established this scholarship in his memory in order to assist a freshman student entering college. Scholarships will be awarded in the amount of $250 - $1,000. The one-time scholarship awards are intended to aid with expenses incurred when beginning a college career (tuition, books, fees, dorm room supplies, school supplies, etc.). Jaelen’s legacy and love for learning will continue through those who receive the scholarships.

To be considered for the Jaelen Isaiah Josey Memorial Scholarship, students must submit the scholarship application, essay, one sealed letter of recommendation, and an unofficial high school transcript postmarked no later than June 3, 2016. The scholarships will be awarded in August 2016. Applications are available from the Guidance Department. 

Parents, A Reminder to Return Surveys by April 22nd

After completing the survey you may do one of two things: 1.) have your student return the completed survey, in the sealable envelope in which it comes, to the school (there is a drop box for surveys on the front desk in the atrium) and we will send it in for you, or 2.) mail it directly to the State Department of Education yourself.
