The History of Spartan Pride
Sparta was a Greek city state that rose to military power in the Seventh Century BCE. Spartans dedicated themselves to excellence on the battlefield through unflinching commitment and rigorous training. Perhaps the most legendary battle fought by the Spartans was the last stand at Thermopylae during which King Leonidas and 300 highly-trained warriors held a mountain pass against the invading Persian army. According to Plutarch, Xerxes the Great, leader of the Persians, wrote to King Leonidas, “Hand over your arms.” Leonidas replied, “Come and take them.” The 300 Spartans repelled 150,000 Persians for seven days inflicting massive casualties on the invaders. Though the battle ended in defeat for the Spartans, their loyalty, dedication, and pride is legendary. Students stay true to these values today; their efforts in the classroom, on fields, in the community, and on the stage make STHS proud.
