    We've had two children at Spann over the last 7 years. We've enjoyed our years as part of the Spann family! The school is well run by caring staff. The front office staff is the best I've ever encountered they treat kids as if they were their own. Although the building is older it is well maintained and clean. There are a few teachers that probably need to consider retiring but the good teachers far out number these. If you have the opportunity to become part of the Spann family I would highly recommend it!

    I'm so pleased with Spann. My children have been attending for the past 4 years. My daughter receives special services by qualified therapists there too. The teachers and staff are wonderful - treating students with respect. Truly grateful to be a part of the Spann family

    Spann is a wonderful school! Your children will love the teachers--who routinely spend most of their energy to make learning interactive and fun! Ms. Carroll and Mrs. Rabb oversee a busy yet friendly school community while maintaining a level of professionalism that exceeds all others. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Spann Elementary!

    This was our first year at Spann Elementary and first year in a public school system. Our daughter enjoyed her 3rd grade year.

    I could go on and on about this excellent school. I love how they really strive for the parents to take part and really be a part of their child's school year. The staff is absolutely wonderful. I was scared to put my child in a public school after we did two years of private schooling. Believe me it was the best decision we have ever made. My daughter has learned so much more at Spann. We have not had the behavioral issues that we had at her other school either. I recommend Spann to any parent that wants to provide their child with an outstanding education and 'family like' environment.
