Message from the Principal

Welcome!  It is with much enthusiasm and a vision for an energized and productive school year that we welcome students and their parents to a new school year.  We are pleased that you are a part of the Spruance family. This year promises to be a very exciting one for our students. Many great events are planned by the staff and the Home and School Association.

As educators and parents our challenge is to help all students view school as an unlimited opportunity for achievement. Together, we can enable our children to reach for and to attain success. Spruance’s doors are always open and we invite you to come anytime to visit, talk, and have a cup of coffee. Please accept our invitation. We look forward to meeting with you.

Welcome to the Gilbert Spruance Elementary School’s Web Site. We are located in the Northeast Region of the School District of Philadelphia. Our school provides a safe, nurturing environment for students in Kindergarten through Grade 8.  All students are afforded the opportunity to achieve to their full potential in order to become lifelong learners and responsible members of the community.
