Spence actively seeks students who reflect racial, cultural, religious and socioeconomic diversity. The School enrolls students in Grades K through 12 from all boroughs of New York City, as well as from parts of Westchester County, Connecticut and New Jersey. We look forward to exploring the lifelong impact of a Spence education with you and your daughter.
