We hope you will enjoy learning about this exciting and worthwhile project, which is having a dramatic impact on the lives of young children in one of the poorest countries in the world. Cambodia’s history, in the last forty years, is filled with war, genocide, poverty and desperation. With the help of caring people and international assistance the country is recovering, but the hope of the country lies with its children and their ability to lift themselves from abject poverty through education.
The Spitler School was established in 2005 and is now providing a primary education to over 800 impoverished children in the village of Ang Chagn Chass not far from the city of Siem Reap. It is supported by the Spitler School Foundation, a 501c3 charitable foundation.
This web site will provide you with information about the school and its history. We also invite you to visit our Facebook Page for recent updates to the school’s activities.
Thank you again for your visit. We hope that you will spend some time browsing this site and learning about Spitler School.

On November 4, U.S. Ambassadar William Heidt delighted our students and staff with a visit to Spitler School. He was welcomed by our school founders, Danny and Pam Spitler, and our Executive Director, Chea Sarin. Ambassador Heidt toured the Spitler School campus and spent time with some of our previous graduates – now in 12th grade. Ambassador Heidt listened to their stories, ideas and hopes for the future. He offered advice and much of the time was filled with smiles and laughter. He presented the school with a kind gift – a book about the U.S. Declaration of Independence.
This visit alone was a special gift to all of us. Thank you Ambassador Heidt! Together, we move forward in taking action towards a better future for Cambodia.
The 10-year anniversary of Spitler School was celebrated in 3 days of exciting events. November 2 included the opening ceremonies with important guest speakers, congratulations for distinguished teachers, a student band and traditional Khmer dancing, and finally distributing bicycles for our 85 6th grade graduates. The evening included a celebration party for the 6th grade graduates.
November 3 was a day bustling with activities – a sports camp from Tracy Evans and her team (Kid Play International), kid’s craft time and an evening thank you dinner for the teachers and their families. November 4 was a special day when Spitler School was honored with a visit from U.S. Ambassador Heidt. Some of our past graduates, now in 12th grade, were delighted to share their time with him, talking about their life, education and future.
