I moved to Albertville a few years ago and wanted to check out the schools before we decided to buy. Our school visit went so well, we bought a home in Albertville. Our child started BSLK last year and we were so happy with the teachers, office staff and principal. Everyone was ALWAYS friendly and helpful. All the teachers and staff got along so well with each other and the principal was out at all of the functions throughout the year. I wish we didn't have to move to APS and I hope APS will be just as wonderful as BSLK!!!

I am a grandparent of a BSLK student. After having my GD in a private Pre-k program, I must say I am very impressed with the teachers and other staff of BSLK. It is nice to know when our GD is not with us she is still in loving caring hands! Go BSLK!!!!!!

We have been very happy with Big Spring Lake. The teachers and principal are awesome. They really care about my child and want to make sure he gets what he needs. They have went above and beyond to make sure my child is happy. Thank you!

Big Spring Lake is always willing to do what is best for the children. Both of my sons went there for kindergarten and they have so many wonderful memories. Some of those would include things such as 'Farm Day', 'Transportation Day', the Birmingham Zoo Field Trip and even small things such as 'Family Movie Night'. The teachers and staff are wonderful and really love what they are doing. It's nice to see teachers who really care and always do what is best for their students.

Big Spring Lake is an excellent school. The teachers and staff are great people. Now that my child is not there anymore, we dearly miss BSLK.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
