About Charles Spencer High School
Charles E. Spencer was a partner in the company that founded the original Grande Prairie townsite. He built many of the city’s original buildings, and was highly involved in a number of civic projects and initiatives in the Peace Region. His visionary dedication to community success makes him the embodiment of the maverick spirit that symbolizes our achievement.
