Just thought parents would like to know the zip code on this page is in correct it is 85209 not 85009. My daughter has been attending this school for this school year so far and they are really working with her and being very patience. Principal and teachers really are involved with my child learning.

This school will ot even allow you to see a classroom before sending your student there. If they don't let you see a classroom with a scheduled appointment, there is something wrong! They're hiding something! I sent my kids to Noah Webster instead. You can call and schedule a tour wheneve you want! They took us into several classrooms so we could see what the kids would be learning from K-6. They also took us into the different levels of each grade as they are ability grouped! Far better school and the same distance from our house :)

The school is a great school which teaches great foundation skills. There are diligent about testing for weakness adn strengths adn have TONS of programs to fit each childs special needs. I would agree that the level of homework and expectations are higher than other schools. Havign moved from another district into this school, I was taken aback at how much they expect out of thier children here, but that is not a bad thing. It is something that some children struggle with however. The Parent enveolvement is outstanding here, and the teachers are always available, sometime you have to reach out to them, but I have always found them helpful and friendly. The Kids LOVE the principle and talk about him all the time at home. If i had any complaints, it is the amount of homework and the amount of fundraisers this school does.. I would ratehr hand them over a $500 check every year than deal with all the cookie dough/wrapping paper/food/book etc... fundraisers they do.

In my opinion, the quality of this school went down in the last two years. (I myself gave the rating of 5 stars some two years ago... when my child was in the 4th grade.) Over the time, I noticed that the overall AIMS scores of students tends to go down (especially in math) in higher grades. The reason might be that teachers themselves are not so comfortable with the pre-calculus math in the 5th and 6th grades. (Writing and reading are somewhat better, even though the corresponding scores went down too.) Here are the AIMS results for math in 2010: 3rd grade- 76%, 4th grade - 73%; 5th grade - 70%, 6th grade - 64%. This are TERRIBLE results even for the state of Arizona. However, let's not forget that Arizona is one of the weakest states in the nation in terms of education. I had to teach math to my child myself. It's fortunate that I can do that professionally. In order to insure the future success of your child, I strongly suggest every parent to address this problem one way or another.

Our son has been attending this school since kindergarten and now is in the fifth grade. We could not be happier with a school! Great caring teachers and staff. They teach the kids the six pillars of character and homework is reasonable not overwhelming so that students can learn yet still enjoy being a child. We highly recommend this school!

I love this school! My son has been in attendance since 2nd grade; he is now in 5th grade. They have a great band program as well as great extracurricular activities. If the school is doing what needs to be done during the day, there is no need for excessive homework. Lots of homework does not make a great school... quite the opposite in my opinion.

I do not know what that parent said on page 2 about the school being hard on kids. I went to this school 2 years ago and they where hard on eny children at all. This is a great school and they follow the six pillers of character,respect,honesty,citizinship,responsibility and trustworthy.

I am so surprised by the negative feedback. This is one of the best schools in the city! The teachers and administrators truely care about the children, they offer wonderful programs and my kids have all benefited greatly from being there! We moved to the Gilbert School District because of it's reputation and we are not at all disappointed! This school deserves all 5 stars!

This is the most disappointing school I have ever encountered. The officials that work at this school pretend to take care of problems. They smile to your face just to get you out the door. Don't fall for what this school dishes out. My child has always received A's and B's but since attending Superstition Springs, his grades have fallen dramatically. I do not trust this school At All and will be Very happy when we move from this district!

Both my children are Superstition Springs Elementary students,one in 6th and one in 4th. We have been blessed with the best teachers who work hard for the benefit of each child. One of my children has learning disabilities and we are overwhelmed with the support and extra help we have received. This school has done so much, more than we could have dreamed. The entire staff has compassionately given their time to listen, and help find solutions that will help him overcome his difficulties. Not only do we find the school to be great but the parents and students also make this school shine. Our school is like one big family. We all care about everyone. When you find a school that gives as much as ours, it's hard not to want to give back! I am currently the PTSO president and proud of it!

The academics are great however the homework level at grade five is a bit overwhelming to say the least. Our son has very little time between the end of the school day and his bed time to do anything but homework. Music and arts are plentiful but there is no sports program. The level of parent involvement is off the charts. I have never experienced this anywhere we have lived.

This is a great school with outstanding teachers that really care about our children's education. The ALP program is top notch. I am a parent with two children attending last year.

We have been very pleased with this school. The teachers are great, community is supportive. The administration has gone through some changes, but a new year and new principal are on the way. We are looking forward to another great year.

Love the A/R program - it's turned my son into a reading maniac! Wish the Gilbert School District concentrated more on phonics during the early grades. Overall, I've been very pleased with the school- everyone is very friendly and helpful.

Overall good teachers, most of them have been with the school for years. The ADK teacher is A+ and you won't find a better one! The principal has changed twice in 2 years and is going to change again for 2004-05 year, which I don't like. I have two children attending this school and they notice the administrative staff and health assistant isn't as friendly as a years past. Overall a good school and just as good or better than others in the area.

We moved into the area last year. The school seemed great to start with. The office staff was very friendly and helpful. the problems were with the teacher. My son has ADHD, and is very bright. He was completely unchallenged, and not allowed to move ahead because of his inability to stay quiet in his seat. The teacher was controlling and yelled at the children. The answer the principal had to solve this was,'The teacher is having some personal problems.' I never knew that there was a problem until the first report card came with all failing grades. This is my straight A student who was always in the gifted program. I wasn't told about any problems until then. I even called the teacher periodically to ask how my son was doing. Every time I got the answer that everything was going great.The principal seemed very helpful, but then nothing would come from it. This school is very good at keeping appearances up and covering up things that go on.
