    "I really enjoy the staff, especially the principal. He is very fair and understanding. Not every course i desired to take was offered, which is understandable in a small school district and is made up for with more personal attention and availability of teachers before and after school."

    "The teachers at SHS seem to fit the whole spectrum. They all are committed to their jobs and seem to love teaching, but it is so easy to differentiate between the tenured and non tenured teachers. The math department carries that vibe he most, with the main teachers, Mrs. Mikulak and Mr. Marvinny often failing to teach their upper level students adequately. This results in tension in the classroom. Other than them, however, the teachers are mostly very nice and always willing to stay after school, come In the morning or even give up their lunch/ prep period to help you, and they're very approachable even if you are not a student of theirs. Often times, if you've had an older sibling come through SHS, teachers you haven't even had will know you, which is kinda nice. There has been a recent influx of new teachers and I don't know how they are, but they also seem to be knowledgable friendly and willing to help."

    "The teachers at my school are very knowledgable in the subject they teach. Many teachers also get very excited about their subject which can't help but get you excited as well. They do their best to involve students in classroom activities through active discussion (if applicable) and new and fun activities like Kahoot. Many teachers also have a great sense of humor which makes the class all the more enjoyable. Our teachers give us chances to speak and in certain classes speak our minds about topics close to our hearts, such as politics, world events, even food. Language teachers give us the opportunity to learn more about culture and history as well as language. History teachers are so passionate that they get up on desks and create scenarios about the topic being taught. Science teachers find fun ways to incorporate what we're learning into labs and allow us to try new things and equipment (with supervision obviously). The teachers here give you all the opportunities to come in for help before and after school. Many of the teachers stay for hours after the school day actually ends. The teachers at Spotswood are dedicated to their jobs and they definitely go above and beyond for the students and their parents."

    "I loved my highschool so much because we were a family. The tragic death of 2 students gave us an even more unbreakable bond."
