Posted August 6, 2007

I have 4 children 2 went to Spradling Elem. last year. I was very happy with their treatment and the communication between staff and myself went very well. I hope that my children will go there this year as well as we are in another district. I am planning on requesting Spradling as our choice for educating our children this year as well.

Quality of programs is at shocking low levels. Principal and staff do not listen to children. They label them instead and are very judgemental children should be seen not heard. No sports to be heard of. Very low in funding and benchmarks. My child is in counseling due to our experience with Spradling staff. Level of parent involvement is low I forced involvement on the school which was not at all well liked. My child and I opted out this new fall semester for better quality education for her.This school needs serious help.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Arkansas used the Benchmark Exam to test students in grades 3 through 8 and 11 in literacy and grades 3 through 8 in math. The Benchmark Exam is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Arkansas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
