His office is located at the end of a large hallway, just a few steps down from Calvin's locker. He has had a low profile in the strip's run.
Principal Spittle is seen as a middle-aged man who always wears a suit, is balding, and wears glasses. He may not fully enjoy his job as hinted in one strip where Calvin and Susie both yelled, "PLEASE DON'T PADDLE US!", while a thought bubble showed him thinking "I hate this job". Moreover, his expression is one of constant boredom in the face of Calvin's antics as Miss Wormwood often sends him to the principal's office.
