  • Spain Park is an excellent school. The teachers are very caring and work with the students to achieve their goals. Academics come first, then sports. The administrative staff is very helpful and informative.

  • We got a new principal today and though it will be sad to no longer have Mr. Broadway there, it will be a good change. Mr. Broadway chooses favorites and they get whatever they want in this school which is not how it should be. Im hoping that with Mr. Shaw coming there will be an end put to this. Overall this is a great school and i feel blessed to go here. go jags.

  • It's not just coach Smith that isn't a great teacher at spain park, and only cares about baseball. I think it's just a thing that all of the baseball coaches share. Which means that if Spain Park baseball sucks this season, these teachers are absolutely 100% pointless to have at Spain Park. The students there for the most part go crazy to learn, and the baseball coaches have no time to teach them because baseball matters more. This is an extreme waste of class time. The men are awesome as people, and they are fun to be around. Though they have these great qualities, there have been countless comments from students in their classes about the teaching style they have. I also have a history teacher that called me a dumbass in front of his entire 7th period for asking him a question. This was, still is, and always will be absolutely unacceptable.

  • This school is overall a very pleasant and productive school. The students are challenged but are given several hours of homework each night. Most teachers are good and willing to help the student anytime unless you are unlucky enough to get a football coach as a teacher then the students grade will suffer. For example Coach smith is a teacher who does not teach well and worries more about the baseball team than his job. But overall this is a great school! GO JAGS!
