About The School
The History of Spencer Primary School-Now Spencer Elementary School
Our entire building is located on a small hill near route 36 leaving Spencer. Our school was built in stages to accommodate the next grade level to attend . The school's name was "Spencer Primary Center".
In 1982, a small school was built which would serve the area kindergarten students. The computer lab, which is located downstairs, was our students first cafeteria. First through eighth grade students attended school at the old "Spencer Elementary School." The old building is now the location of the Roane County Committee on Aging. This building is located near Washington Park.
In 1988, another section was built to hold our first grade students, and construction continued for our second graders to follow in 1989. The plan for our school was to move third and fourth grade students to this facility, as well. Those students began the school year here in 1991. During this time frame we also added a pre-school class. Our name was still "The Spencer Primary Center". At this time, our enrollment was approximately 630 students. In the school year 2002-2003 our school's name was changed to "Spencer Elementary School". We are the "Jaguars", and our school colors are sky blue and silver.
