 Greetings from the Principal

As the principal of William H. Spencer High School, I realize and appreciate the historical and current significance of the opportunity I have been given.  The portraits of the past principals that we pass each and every day are constant reminders of the rich tradition our school has enjoyed for decades. W.H. Spencer has a myriad of opportunities for students which include our Academy of Computer Science and Electronic Game Design magnet. As we embark on this new journey, I commit to serving our students, faculty, parents, and community to best of my ability.  Our school is our family, and we will love, educate, and nurture our young men and women, so that they can develop into future leaders in all areas both home and abroad. Once again, I appreciate this awesome opportunity to impact the lives of our greatest resources – our children. Thanks again for your trust, commitment, and service to our students, and we look forward to having an outstanding school year.
