The Spence School Reviews

The Spence School has an amazing community of girls while also maintaining its academic rigor. Every day, I come into school with a smile on my face because I am so excited to go into school- because I know that it means not only learning and seeing my friends, but it also means partaking in numerous after school activities at Spence. I also feel that I am challenged in so many new ways each day but classes are still fun and hands on!

Spence is a school like no other. It has been the most wonderful place for my daughter to grow in all ways. Although their academic program is rigorous, there is always support for those who need it. In addition, the community and faculty are warm and friendly. We absolutely love Spence!
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.
