This is great school until your child is being bullied. Then the school has no idea how to handle the situation.All of my children have went to this school and two out of three have had issues.

The first couple of years at this school are usually fantastic (K- 2nd). There are some key teachers that are beyond awesome. Unfortunately, they are at a school that has lost focus. These few teachers deserve better and the kids deserve more teachers like these special few.

I was raised in this school now my children go there. There were a number of strict but wonderful teachers in the elementary school when I attended Cold Springs, and the entire school has done nothing but flourish in the last 20 years. I believe the quality of elementary teachers is some of the best in the state.

I believe that the quality of the academic program at this school is excellent. Most of the teachers are caring and concerned about the progress of the students. There is a music and sports program. The level of parental involvement is great! Everyone is friendly. There is a sense of security and safety when you are at this school! Wonderful area to raise children.
