    I feel that Spann is a great school. My child has attended Spann since Kindergarten. There are alot of fresh new faces that student's seem to respond well to. I am so very pleased and am impressed with the way the PTA is encouraging parents to get involved. We've had a fall carnival and school wide activites for students to promote good behavior! Go Spann!

    This school has went down this year to me. It seems that the teacher could care less about the children and from time to time i have went in the building and heard many of the teaches screaming at the student way to much. I feel that this school needs a new make over on all the employees. I have also seen with my own eyes how the few white children and the mixed race children get miss treated and i'm a black lady and feel this is so wrong. We need to do better...
