My children have attended Spencer for 4 years now. One is a junior and on a sophomore. I have found the teachers on the whole, are caring and attentive. They are willing to go the extra mile for a student. The administration is fantastic! From the office secratary to the principal to the guidence office. The students try hard. As with all schools it does have problems but overall I have found this to be an outstanding school. Sandra Reed

I am currently a Junior at Spencer High School! Everybody tries to pull us down just because we are majority black school and on the southside of Columbus. I am one of the very few white kids that attend Spencer and love it! I have never had a problem due to my race or anything. These students and teachers open their arms to you and they just don't care. I currently have a 3.6 GPA and enrolled in honor and ap classes! I wouldn't want to go to another school if asked! People should just give Spencer a chance and not just judge it by the outside.

I am currently a student at spencer high and i love it. It is a school i enjoy going to because it is a learning enviroment but in a cool kind of way. It is laid back but strict. I love spencer and i wouldnt change it for nothing. I have a currently 3.4 GPA and im still doing fine. So if your a type of student that loves to learn in a fun enviroment SPENCER IS FOR YOU.

I was a student at Spencer High for 3 years. From the day I came to Spencer I did not like it. Many teachers were not teaching, giving work, or disciplining distracting students. I left Spencer this year and I am currently passing all classes and doing all work. My new school has less ditractions, the teachers are doing their jobs, and they are givng us work. I do not recommend students attending this school.

As a parent of a sophomore student i think Spencer is a great school.My son has been going there for three years he's in the academie.Spencer is not the school he is supposed to be going to he's home school is carver.I heard a lot of good thing about Spencer that is why we decided to let him go there,and this coming up school term my daughter will also attend there on a hardship.I never have had any problems getting a conference with any teachers,staff etc. in fact they always call me if there is a problem weather it is academic or whatever.I have one more daughter in middle school and guess what.she will attend Spencer also.so to all the staff keep up the good work.sincerly R Hallmark

I am a student at Spencer High. This school is the worse school ever. I would love to change schools but i cant right now. Most teachers care about wether you pass or not. Some teachers give you hope. This year we are getting a new principal, hopefully it is a stricter principal.

'I'm a former student from Spencer High until my dad got stationed at Fort Bragg. I spent 3 years at Spencer from a freshman to a junior there. My overall experience was great, but at the time I was there were some outstanding teachers whom did care about whether or not you passed. Not only do the teachers and staff count for the quality of a a school, but it's also the student body. I was also in JMPA all 3 years, Officer Seldon was great and made all his students feel safe, I also loved the JROTC program at Spencer High. I can truly say I miss Spencer High School and I enjoyed my experience there'.

Spencer High School, has helped many of my family, brothers, sisters, cousins, and friends reach their full potential. At this establishment, education is their primary goal, nut to reach the scholar within the student is also.

Spencer High School is given less credit than it should. As a student currently attending the school and a student in the Academy, I see what really goes on everyday and not what is lied about in the newspapers. I strongly disagree with the fact that the student that was suspended was able to return to the school. He was not suspended for talking to his mother, but for misconduct. His behavior was outrageous and disrespectful. The people who are being victimized shouldn't be. The teacher that reprimanded him for talking on the phone (illegally, according to school rules)is one of the BEST teachers at Spencer. She's being threatened for doing her job and it is not right. If we were all threatened for doing our jobs, then firefighters would be threatened for saving lives and doctors would be threatened for healing people. Think about it.

So you suspended a kid for talking with his mom serving in Iraq - that teaches your student body what lesson? Right - there's no reason to stay in school because Spencer High is run by insensitive idiots.

I think that Spencer High is not the right school for any of my children. I have been to that school. Also I have requested a conference from the teachers and have yet to get a conference and the school year is almost over. I am a parent that cares about my children's education and Spencer High seems to be the one that doesn't care.

Spencer is a great school. Many people in the community judge this high school and the kids that attend this school off what they have heard. My opinion is, if you were to spend sometime at the school and around the kids, you would see we do great things. The community should try to look at the positive rather than the negative of the students and this school. I am Spencer Wavette.

Spencer is a great school with diverse student body. The school,facaulty,student body etc does not always get it's deserved recognition. The one disappointing thing about Spencer is the lack of strength in the athletic area. Great emphasis on school Spirit could come of stronger athletic offerings.
