I love our school although it is a little over crowded. The kids go all out for spirit day and for games. Our homecoming was a couple of weeks ago. We spent 2 weeks looking for purple tutu's, purple and black tights, and a lot of the kids made their own designs on purple t-shirts. Most of the teachers are great, some not so great. There is a great diversity among races in the school, which I like because we teach our kids not to be prejudice. There is a lot of communication that comes to us via email and phone calls.
im not a fan of Spanish Springs. i think the teachers don't care whether the students fail or succed. There just there to do there job not to encourage just to teach and they feel the students aren't important. The teachers also descriminate against race.
