A great school. Teachers have a lot of respect for children. The only problem - overcrowded in higher classes.
The teachers are mostly very nice, some even exceptionally good, but unfavorable teacher/student ratio in Springbrook leads to lower academic achievement. Kids just don't get enough attention. During this year I sent only 3 or 4 e-mails with essential questions to our child's teacher, but never received a response or any acknowledgement at all.
This school is big on academics and fundraising but not very big on play (socialization) skills or fun for primary grades. The faculty is very competent in their teaching techniques. We wish there were more activities that didn't require parents to hand over cash or write a check each time. The primary physical education is a joke. These kids will be chubby and cranky by the time they hit 4th grade - but they'll be smarter than the more athletic ones in other schools. Our result has been very good, but I know some parents are struggling trying to keep up with Irvine's academic goals.
Springbrook school has been a welcome challenge to my son. He is excited to go to school every day due to the many innovating academic programs available. He is encourage every day in his performance. The academic programs are well rounded, including, art, music & sports.
Outstanding teachers and a very dedicated principal. Strong family support of the school.
