About Us

Grades Taught



SPAEC started as a seed in the mind of the late Doug Yeo our Superintendent of schools in the school year of 1996-1997. The school started out with only a handful of students and one teacher. Over the years our student enrollment has grown substantially. SPAEC provides service, support and instruction with a new direction in education.


In cooperation with parents and community, SPAEC provides for the development of responsible, productive and learned citizens while respecting cultural, linguistic and religious diversity.
