Great teachers and staff. My daughter transferred to this school due to behavior and IEP needs. She has dramatically improved. I haven't had any behavior issues since she started attending and she has improved academically. I'm really impressed.

I read on the internet that this principal only cares about the money and not the kids from The previous school that he was at. Also The school psychologist last year did not know anything about kids and their problems. I am so glad that they have a new one this year.

My son went to this school last year, and it was very stressful for him and the rest of the family, because of the new principle last year.

The school atmosphere is so nice and kids friendly . Choosing the public school over private for my daughter was a good decision .

The school has many excellent teachers and very friendly staff in the office. We are so excited with the new principal this year. He is very involved and visibly on school yard very morning. Under his leadership, the school now is building a decent library with some parent volunteers. We are hoping the new principal will make many positive changes to the school (ex: adding more after school programs). My son is in 1st grade and I have a Kindergarden next year. We are happy with the school but wish to see more parent involvement.

There is a strong commitment at Spangler to providing a quality education. The school has raised their test scores from previously lower levels, and was recently declared a California Distinguished School. Students and parents are encouraged to participate. Classes rotate in helping out in the cafeteria, and there are occasional door prizes. The playground is well-maintained. Every student has lunch with the principal at least once. Good behavior is rewarded with 'Spangler dollars', which students can periodically use to purchase toys etc. Teachers are genuinely interested in the children.

My son and daughter both attended Spangler. I was very impressed with the kindergarten program, I found the teacher, Mrs. Singleton to be an excellent teacher who was very willing to speak with parents. The first grade program was a wonderful follow up, and Mrs. Starr managed a varied and demanding class in 2004/05. Although I think highly of the intermediate teachers, I felt the overall curriculum lacked organization and did not prepare the students for entry into middle school. Overall, it is a distiguished school for a reason.

Spangler is a great school and the teachers and staff work very hard to make it a clean, safe environment to learn in. The educational programs at Spangler are detailed and well thought out as is the path taken to plan and execute the annual plan. Parental involvement could be better and the staff and PTA work hard to make sure that parents that want to get involved with a child's education have many opportunities to do so. Spangler is a forward thinking school and as such is always looking to improve the quality of education.
