The Spence School Reviews

The Spence School is an extremely academically rigorous and challenging school. It has challenged me in every sense: in the classroom and outside. The political and social conversations held in the school are strictly "Spence conversations", meaning you wouldn't find these conversations at any other school. The girls are respectful of one another and there is a strong sense of camaraderie within the school. I truly love everything about Spence, and if you pulled aside any Spence girl or Spence alum, they would say the exact same thing.

I love walking through the Spence red doors every day. I understand how lucky and privileged I am to attend a school that produces educated and well-spoken young women. Spence pushed you to use your voice to speak up, to have your opinion be heard, something that is not found in most schools. At Spence, we are taught to use the things we are learning to better ourselves and the people around us, to be inclusive of everyone, to speak our minds. We are taught that by being kind and helpful to others is as beneficial to ourselves as it is to those we are helping. We are taught to lean on our peers, classmates, and teachers for support through the stress and hard work we endure and to use the many resources that we are so privileged to have access to. I could not wish for a better school to attend every day or for better people to be surrounded by every day.
Great experience at the school. Incredible teachers, resources, and environment. The best all-girls school in NYC by far.
