Cool School: Spencer High School

Posted: Updated:
COLUMBUS, Ga. - Students at Spencer High School start every morning with announcements by members of GTV-The Voice. It's a student involved program when participants get hands on experience in front of the camera and behind the scenes making fun, informative announcements for the student body. It's one of many programs that makes Spencer High School one of our Cool Schools. The program is a learning experience for all those involved.

"It's taught me not to be so shy and to get out and get involved in the school," said 11th grade student Shaniya Davis.

Students also get the chance to participate in a number of activities including "The Green Team." It's an award winning community service organization at Spencer High School.

"We gave away 1,000 turkeys. We go to elderly people's homes and help them work around the yard and stuff like that and whatever they may need," said senior Precious Massaquoi.

The program is only 2 years old, but students enjoy the chance they get to help their community and their school with a variety of service projects. Another cool feature of the school is the Magnet Program. Students get hands on experience with a number of topics like computer science and electronic game design. They also take field trips to a variety of colleges to get a taste of the college life.

"We did a tutoring program for computer science and so when we went up to Georgia Tech we got to see a little of the campus during that trip. It's incredible I got to experience what the college life is," said senior Dennis Seldon.
