Coming to this school, I was afraid to see all the many rumors and stereotypes everyone made it to be. Everyone had always told me that Spruce was a horrible school and that only dumb kids went there. I had an epiphany after being in the school for a week maybe, and realized that everyone made is sound horrible because of its past, but in the year of 2014-2015 this school has in my opinion been a great school! Everyone was working hard to make their grades as high as possible and work with what they knew and had with some exceptions. But in the end, it was limited by the budgets because of how people see this school. Most people who say bad things about it are ignorants who have even seen it or seen how big of a change is has made over the past years. It is a great school with amazing good teachers who would do anything to help a student succeed in school to achieve their goals for their future. Honestly, people shouldn't judge it for its past but for how great it has become. Thank you.

This school is not useful at all. I came to this school from James Madison High School thinking that I would learn more. However, I have learned nothing at all. Everything they teach, I already knew. Plus, the teachers don't care if you fail or pass, and the students are out of this world! I would not recommend this school to anyone! I'm glad that I'm transferring soon and I will not regret it.

I have but one thing to say about H. Grady Spruce...... Look at the posts from the students and you will see the problem. There is not one ounce of intellegence! The proof that it is a low performing school is right in front of your eyes!

I think Spruce is one of the worst schools that I have ever heard of. My child goes there and they never come home with any homework. They have no after school programs for the kids to be involved in so what is it that you expect the kids to get into. I can only look forward to the end of the year when I disenroll my child...

Spruce is alright,but you all are so obssesed with trying to be the best in the district, always comparing us with other schools,saying how we can do better than that and we know we can we're just tired of hearing you say it. I think it's great that we are a recognized school now, so lets start from there and move on up don't push us because we are not #1,yet, and if your just reading this and not taking consideration then you can just shut it down and say Hello to our new recreational center

School is very unorgainized, students are out of control and if a change is not made then the school will surely shut down.

This school is the worst school I have ever been to. The staff is negligent, lazy, and unprofessional. The school makes mistakes and will not fix them for fear of DISD noticing what is going on there. I spoke to the principal concerning attendance that teachers admitted to making a mistake on and she said she could not do anything because 'Then 'they' would be like what is going on over there at spruce'. My daughter has told me of teachers threatening students, students threatening teachers, students threatening students and then acting upon it and teachers standing by watching! This school needs major help and DISD needs to get over there quick because those students are not getting any kind of education!
