Spring Garden faculty cares tremendously about the students success. I attended Spring Garden and most of my family attended as well. It is an excellent school with great kids! It has grown and will continue to grow for many years to come. I highly recommend it to new families that have moved to the area.

I have children who attend Spring Garden. Every thing that has been written about this school good or bad is right on point. While alot of people are questioning why some one would think SG needs or wants a band hammers home the negative side to SG being so small. My husband and I both graduated from area schools that had bands so to us it was weird to start carrying our kids to football games on Friday nights and not have a half time show, these kids have never had one so they dont understand that a marching band is as much a tradition as is football players and cheerleaders.

We moved from the Pepperell School District so our son could go to Spring Gardens 7 years ago. There are some things going on at the school that I don't approve of, but that is at every school. We love the school and so does our son. What goes on here is a walk in the park compared to Pepperell and other schools.

I think that spring garden is a great school. And to all of the people trying to get rid of our principal and Coach Howard you can just take your crap and your kids and just leave. There is absolutley nothing wrong with coach or anyone else in the school. If you don't like them then just leave. Its that simple. I love this school. I can't believe that you people would try to bring it down like this. Coach Howard is a great Guy and an awesome football coach. So once again if you don't like the people at the school, its principal, or especially Coach Howard then take your kids out, leave, and go somewhere else. Thank You

Spring Garden as always been a great school. I gruadated in 1978 and have had my children in Spring Garden School and now my grandchildren.. Love the school . Would really like to see more about the marching band on here.

I believe that a schools success can be measured in more ways than test scores. Spring Garden offers an excellent opportunity for students to participate in many extracuricular activities that build self confidend, self esteem and develop leadership skills. A very nice combination of student/teacher/parent/communtiy involvement help make the school unique in it's ability to care for, develop and educate each student. A high level of expectation is combined with a high level of student interest from the faculty. My son is excelling in college now and a lot of that is a direct result of the quality education he recieved at Spring Garden.

Spring Garden is not only a great school but a close community. I graduated from Spring Garden along with my 2 brothers. My daughter is also a graduate and my son is currently a student. The parent involvement is one of the assets of our school. Everyone takes pride in our kids and community. We feel the responsibility not only for our children but our neighbors children as well.

I attended Spring Garden and have moved back so my kids can attend there. The school is definitely growing which means only better programs will be available. Athletics is an important part of the school's identity and pulls the community together. The academic side is excellent. I graduated from Auburn with honors after attending Spring Garden. My older brother can say the same thing. The size of the school definitely helps with the lack of problems that you find in other places.

My husband and i are both graduates of spring garden. Our daughter is a student there. I wouldn't send my child to any other school. Spring garden is a small school, which is a good thing. Teachers are able to get to know the students better than if it were a larger school. Getting to know the students better helps teachers adapt the lessons to the students' ability. Having a band and music program is not something that would have helped me or any of my friends, we simply were not interested. If that is an interest, there is a school close by that offers that. Band is not everything. Sports have always been a focus at spring garden. Sports builds character and brings the community closer together. Look at how many show for the state playoffs. Parents are involved in their child's education. I love spring garden. Go panthers!

I attended spring garden school and would not ever send my children there. It is way too small to be able to offer enough for the students. They also put too much emphasis on sports and that will not get you through life.

I am a graduate of Spring Garden, and my child is currently attending there also. It's small enough for me to feel she is safe,but I also know she is getting a good education. My brother attended there and went on to graduate from the University of Alabama. I wouldn't send her to any other school,& that includes the neighboring schools in this area.

I went to this school for half a year, and I didn't like it at all. I did not like it at all, they don't have a band or any art classes. I got out of there as soon as possible. k thanx

Spring Garden has its high and low points. The students are safe when they are at Spring Garden and it is small enough for security to keep a watch on.T here are no major drug or violence problems, which is rare in many other schools. Yet, there are some faults to being a smaller school. The students have fewer course choices...such as music, art, or a variety of foreign languages. Also,my daughter goes to school at Spring Garden and she says that many of the students who do not play basketball are not treated with as much respect as the players. Spring Garden puts too much emphasis on athletics. The students need to know that there are other options out there.

I am a graduate of spring garden high school. I had no problems when i was enrolled at jsu passing any of my courses. I had many friends who went to sister schools and were not at all prepared for what we would go through in college. Many of those friends did not finish college, simply because they were not ready, they had not had the education i did at spring garden. I am now a teacher and i hope that i can help my students the way all of my teachers helped me! to sum it all up, spring garden is a great school!

I have had two children attend Spring Garden and now have three grandchildren attending. I think the size of the school is a bonus. Small enough to be more personal with teachers who really care. It's more like a large, extended family. Children are pushed academically and athletically. There is a huge spirit of unity and pride in the students and the parents. My children at some points attended private schools during their educations, so I have the experience to compare. I think Spring Garden is better, and we don't have to pay private school prices.

Spring Garden does have a lot of activites for all of the kids, but they do not have a band. Music education is very important to students. Research shows that students who study music and the arts score higher on the verbal and math portions of the SAT than students with no coursework or experience in the arts. An education in the arts readily engages a wide variety of learning styles and increases learning potential for students. Schools who have integrated music and the arts into the curriculum have seen an increase in test scores and student attendence and a decrease in drop-out rates.

At Spring Garden, you can find everything from the big world all crammed into this tiny school. Athletics are really pushed forth, while academics linger around in the minds of some students. With kids coming in from all areas, this school is rapidly growing over 600 and I do like it.
—Submitted by a student


Posted August 19, 2003

Spring Garden is a wonderful school because its big enough to supply everything that the kids need and small enough for everyone to know each other. I wouldn't have my kids go anywhere else.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Alabama used the Alabama Science Assessment (ASA) to test students in grades 5 and 7 in science. The ASA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alabama. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficiency level 3.

The different student groups are identified by the Alabama Department of Education. If there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
