Spanish Springs Elementary School Reviews
This school is absolutely wonderful! I transferred my boys - grades 1st and third and in the first 6 weeks of attending, I noticed a difference in their learning and just how much more education they are getting! There attitude is so much better and I can honestly say that they are learning above and beyond what other schools in our district even offer to students. I sincerely feel that if I would have left my boys in their last school they would be learning at a grade level much lower that what that are given at SSES! Keep up the great work, you have shown my boys that they can excel and be above the rest. Great job Teachers & Staff! We thank you for how much you care and all the time you are investing in our childrens future!
This school year has taken a different turn with LOTS of social issue stuff being taught, just look at the students work hanging in the halls, quad, classroom doors....everywhere! It is the schools job to teach the academics and that seems to be less and less of the focus.
This seems to be a big part of the new administrations agenda. Both administrators unresponsive to parent concerns and seem to be running a Mickey Mouse fan club with the teachers with a daily 'We love you!" message over the intercom. Wow.
