I loved William Henry Spencer High School! Meeting great students, teachers, and staff during my matriculation was a great experience and added value to my programs of study.
Attending Spencer High School was truly an honor. My four years of attendance taught me alot. While attending this school I learned how to be myself , be active in the community, and how to have true school spirit. I still , to this very day, reminisce about the green and gold as they glittered across the hallway walls. The staff at this school were truely amazing and cared about every individual student that attended. I was blessed to have graduated for a school who would give anything to ensure I succeeded.
