I am so happy to have my children be a part of the Spencerport School District. I grew up in this district and it is so nice to see that the value of education and motivation has not been lost over the years. The teachers are so helpful and encouraging to the children. I am so happy to see my kids enjoying their time in school.

Probably the best school I've been too in a long time. The teachers here are excellent! (Most of them :o) The counselors and assistant principles are always there to help you when you need them and if there is a bullying issue, one trip to the counselors can fix that quickly!

It is such a positive, healthy living environment. I have gone to over 10 schools adn Spencerport was always my favorite. We are family at spencerport and it is just refreshing to know that I can rely on my friends and the staff to always help me with anything.

Spencerport high school is a horrible school due to its widespread bullying problem. Our family left the district because the administration did a horrendous job protecting my child from constant racialized bullying.

We are truly blessed to be in such a wonderful school! The teachers are very personable and dedicated to their jobs and most of all know our son and how he works best! The school is very communicative with newsletters and the teachers answer emails very quickly! Awesome! Linda D'Ettore

I have been so impressed with this school! We moved from Greece to get away from that school district and I am so glad we went to Spencerport. The teachers truly love to teach and they care about the kids education. They make themselves readily available and best of all they return my e-mails and phone calls within the same day.I'm so glad we moved....
