Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
Bullying is handled quickly on campus. I am thankful how the principal handled a situation with my daughter.

Handles bullying effectively: Strongly disagree


- a
If the bully comes from money then no consequence and they are allowed to bully students at will.


Effective school leaders: Strongly disagree


- a
New leadership is very weak and antagonistic toward parents. No transparency.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
Total failure in this area. Principal caters to monied parents and their children run amuck without consequence.

Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
Lower school teachers are very good but the upper school appears to have their hands tied or be burned out. Grades are posted so late in the semester that parents cannot monitor. Teachers leave as soon as the bell rings and are not available to students after or before school hours.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Homework without grading it is a waste. How do students know what they need to work on?

SSPP is a wonderful school. My child is not only learning but is thriving in this environment. The principal Mrs. Roll is a very kind and caring person who truly keeps the best interests of the students, families, and teachers in mind. My child has been to four other schools in Tucson and this school is by far the best. The teachers are dedicated, the families are involved, and the students are nice to each other. I feel my child will be very well prepared academically, socially, and spiritually for high school and beyond.

There are few good choices for K-8 education in Tucson AZ. We were getting worried where to put our K child. BASIS was our 1st choice since it has high standards and is a top performing school in the Nation, long wait lists forced us to go to SSPP. A few months later, I'm convinced SSPP is my 1st choice. The K teacher who has been teaching there for 30 yrs was excellent. And the parental community is cohesive and caring, the new principal has great aspirations and cares too. Overall, this parent can smell if the administrators of the school are caring or indifferent and doesn't care; SSPP passes this test at this time in 2014, although I understand that this may change at any time. The reason I gave a 4 star instead of a 5 star is the unavailability of Spanish classes for the children. Even public schools in Tucson such as in district 16 schools have Spanish classes. I think learning multiple languages especially Spanish here in Tucson will benefit students of SSPP greatly in their future careers. I think it is a great disservice that Spanish is not being taught at SSPP. I hope Spanish will be taught in SSPP soon. Even though I'm not Hispanic, I want my child to learn Spanish.




- a
SSPP has an amazing new principal who has a BA, MA and , MA in education degrees. She is also a certified National Board Educator. This principal greats all families everyday and is highly visible on campus. My family has noticed positive curriculum changes and high learning expectations on campus. As a family of the past four years, this new principal is bringing needed change to SSPP.



- a
This is school provides a safe atmosphere on campus. The kids here are warm and respectful, however transferring in from a private school from a different state, their technology use here is much behind from what we came from - the previous school gave each child an IPad to for their learning and not have to carry around heavy textbooks. It is so crazy to have a youngsters these days to be carrying heavy books in their backpacks.
