The school is fairly average and does not boast many defining qualities. The school has your basic sports, but they all suck every year and are merging with a nearby district to remedy the lacking player counts. The school offers a few AP's and ACE courses through local community colleges and does a great job preparing students for their next step either it be college or not. The faculty is great and there are a host of clubs and after school activities to choose from. The best way to describe it is typical or generic.

I love Spencer-Van Etten High School. It is a small school, which allows you to personally know your teachers and get 1 on 1 help from them. There is rarely any bullying because everyone knows everyone. Students are very nice and helpful to other students, even ones that are younger. We do a lot of community service throughout our village and nearby cities. We are very well known within our sports, clubs, and academics. I would recommend this school for anyone that lives near Spencer, New York.
The teachers are all friendly and try their best to help the students. At spencer the students are not just students, they are family and the teachers will do whatever it takes to make sure the family is happy and succeeding in life.
