I've had kids in school at Spring Grove since 2005 and I've seen it become an amazing school. We have great teachers and all the staff are involved to make it a wonderful learning environment for the kids.

Spring Grove School is absolutely the best school in the county. In addition to great test scores, they have after school sports, a theater arts program, send 6 graders to science camp, have math tutoring 2 nights a week, have substantial PE, still have a holiday program, and do a great "Turkey Trot" run that the whole school participates in at Thanksgiving, and have a very clean campus, including clean bathrooms. They have a staffed library and computer lab. Teachers in the upper grades know the names of the kids in K-5. When there are problems, the principal and her staff get right on them. This is a no-nonsense, but loving and caring school, where your child will get a great education in a safe environment.

The school is really good. I would say it is amazing however the there is 2 main problem: Unreliable staff. This will be coming from a graduated student of the school, so im not possitive if there have been staff changes or not. So about the unreliable staff, i came to the school in 6th grade and i thought the teachers were great. In 7th, one teacher bullied each of the students in his/her class and he/she was just a creep. 8th grade there were 2 good teachers and one was just outright mean and always was giving lectures during class about how the president was great (he/she would do that if a student said they didnt like the president), this only led to a waste of classtime. The principle is clueless much of the time as well, which annoys me. Aside from this huge flaw in the junior high portion of the school, there was one minor problem with the school. Assembelies. The assemeblies were always done in a odd way that ended up wasting everyones time. The whole school is gathered in one gym, THE WHOLE SCHOOL! (That is pre-K all the way to 8th grade!). There is not much room for parents and the whole thing is a flaw. Aside from all this the school is great so i give it 3 1/2 stars.

My daughter started Spring Grove last year for Kindergarten and we absolutely loved her Teacher Mr.B. He exceeded all our expectations and our daughter has blossomed. This year, 1st Grade is a just as good. Nothing but dedicated Teachers and Parents working together for our Childrens success. Best School by far for so many reasons. Great sense of community.

What is up with this school???? The staff is "out to lunch". My child is being terrorized on a daily basis by students "in charge", staff and parents of the "students in charge". Tax payer money gone wrong here! The state needs to step in and CLEAN HOUSE!

My children attended this school since 2001. We left this school voluntarily several years ago by choice since my youngest son had a string of substitutes for his entire first year of kindergarten and that the older 6th-8th graders were behaving "badly" in the bathrooms and in the back of school buses. Unfortunately, the school my children were attending for the last several years lost funding and had to close. So we came back to Spring Grove with an open mind. Let's just say if you want your child in a hostile learning environment or your child is a bully then this is the school for you. Not only are their gangs of bullies, some of the teaching staff are bullies themselves. One teacher in particular continually singled my child out repeatedly, humiliating him in front of other students and the gangs of bullies. The principal is absolutely of no use what-so-ever in these matters. If she "can't see it actually happening" she supposedly can't do anything about it. Several letters and meetings later nothing has changed. Your child has no rights at this school. Parents beware!!!! I would give zero stars if I could.

We have 3 children at Spring Grove and we love all that the school has to offer the students from Pre-K to 8th grade. They are always looking for ways to improve the academic programs and keeping our kids fit. We love our school!

Our son just completed Spring Grove's Pre-K program. He attended 5 days per week from 8:15a to 12:15p. The total cost was only $350/mo and included snacks & lunch. Miss Willams (his teacher) was superb! She was highly organized and engaging. My son developed greatly over the course of the school year. By the end of the year, he was able to count to 100, clearly write his name, and read short sentences. We are thrilled to be a part of Spring Grove School!

Our daughter was an interdistrict transfer for the '08-'09 school year. She had Mrs. Tomasini for her Kindergarten class. My husband and I couldn't be happier with Spring Grove! All of the staff is pleasant and 'on the ball.' Mrs. Tomasini turned our social butterfly into an excellent reader and speller with a genuine LOVE of school. Thank you, Mrs. Tomasini and thank you, Spring Grove! We just got our son into Spring Grove's Pre-Kindergarten program...woohoo!

Wonderful school!!! My child is in 2nd grade at Spring Grove, and I have to say I am very very happy with everything about this school. My child has had wonderful teachers all three years.

As a parent and educator of 2 students at Spring Grove School I have found it to be an excellent educational experience. The teachers are completely devoted to their students individually, as well as professional and knowledgable about the education system. With the guidance of the new principal, Spring Grove is the best school in Hollister hands down. It is Supportive, positive, and well-rounded, offering sports programs, drama, clubs, and so much support for struggling students. No child ever gets left behind at this school!

This is my daughters about to finish her kindergarden year and she just absolutely loves it. Her teacher Mrs. Barone, has been a great influence on her. She's alway willing to go that extra mile for any of her students. The office staff is a joy to be around and I absolutely love this school.

I've never seen a school where middle school students are so polite. I believe that this is a reflection of the great teachers from K-8. My daughter's primary grade teacher still keeps in touch, and she loves her middle school teachers! Thank you Spring Grove for allowing my child to grow up at her own pace.

I want to take this opportunity to publicly thank the staff of Spring Grove School. As a parent and an educator I appreciate the dedication that these individuals give to the students who attend Spring Grove. In an era when test scores are emphasized, the teachers at Spring Grove put in the extra time to enrich my child s educational experience above and beyond the standards stressed by the state, districts, administrators, and school boards throughout California. My son has been fortunate enough to have teachers who have included lessons about different cultures, art and poetry. They have taken the time to reinforce values like tolerance, compassion, and tenacity. Additionally, my son is comfortable and confident at school because dedication of the teachers, aids, and parent volunteers who work to make Spring Grove a safe learning environment.

I am very glad my son attends Spring Grove it is a very family oriented school. Teachers all work very close together.

I have two children who attend Spring Grove. They have attended other schools in the past, but this school is the best yet. The staff, from teachers to principals, and even office assistants truly care about these children who attend. They hold high standards, but will do whatever necessary to teach the kids at their level. both of my children scored above average on the STAR last year compared to average the prior year at another school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

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