There are quite a few extracurricular activities to keep each student involved. Most activities require some form of commitment but are not very time consuming. Most of the students that are involved are involved in many different activities. Some of the most popular activities are any of the music activities, which is because those activities are at such a high level nothing else can compete. Other popular activities include student council, drama club, history club, FFA, spanish club, BLAST (being a leader and standing tall), and GSA. There are more but those are the most activate ones. With that being said, most students are involved in at least one activity and each activity has a lot to offer.

I’m a parent of s senior at Spencer. I think it’s a great school for it’s size. There are only 51 students in my sons class so everyone are friends. The current administrator and current high school principal have made it a better and safer environment for our kids. I feel the majority of high school teachers are there for the kids and the guidance counselor is top notch. She is very approachable and knows each kid and their needs. I feel there is always room for improvement. There is a lot to be said about a smaller close knit school and community.
Some teachers are great, depends on where you are in the school. Lots of changes in recent years, not all good, but not all bad. Have Chromebooks now, which was a bad idea, should have gotten better quality computers with Microsoft Office ability instead of relying on Google for everything. At least the Agricultural Education Department, FFA Chapter, and Music Department are awesome, makes up where other places lack.
