  • I love my school. I started in 7th grade, nervous, frightened, since i'm pretty timed i could say. Immediately, everyone was friend, and welcoming. Suddenly, you don't feel, like the new girl anymore. You could say you've been going for years. It really feels that way. Now I'm in 9th grade and as far as I'm concerned, Spence is the best school I've ever gone to. And trust me, i've been to a lot
