Spruce St School

Spruce Street School is a diverse environment of students, families, and staff.
Every day, we strive to intentionally create a culture that fosters strong character, positive self-image, and a life-long excitement for learning.
We honor and value each and every student: who an individual student is, where that student is from, and what that student brings to both the classroom and the community.
We model and teach respect for all types of diversity, including cultural, ethnic, racial, economic, family structure, sexual orientation, gender identity, learning differences, beliefs, and abilities.
