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.
anthony spangler elementary school this is a great school.The staff are friendly and helpful.My son has special needs we get all the support from the teachers ,counselor,psychologist and the special ed teachers.thank you for being there for us.
Spangler is doing so well since past couple years with all the young enthusiastic teachers, very active principal and lots of new changes and additions in the methodology used in classes. I'm very happy with its progress !
Hi, My experience with Spangler elementary was wonderful. All the school staff/teacher are very friendly and take care of children very well. Classes are well organized and planned. My son always look forward to go to school:)
Spangler has amazing teachers, always willing to work with you and your child. I have also seen the school principal actively participation and an open door policy to address any of your concerns.
My daughter joined this school last year in Kindergarden . The growth I saw in her over the year was spelended . The whole staff and principal are so warm and helpful . The school atmosphere is so nice and kids friendly . Choosing the public school over private for my daughter was a good decision .
Great neighborhood school, CA distinguished school. Great new leadership team who really seem to care about the individual child in additional to making sure the whole school succeeds.
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.
My daughter is going to Spangler since KG. The teachers are really great. They are so dynamic, dedicated and smart. After talking to them, felt like this is the place where my daughter has to be.
My son has gone to Spangler since Kinder.With Maria del Rio as principal, And she is truly the best!! They don't come any better!! My son is happy, smart (in the GATE program) and vary well adjusted. The teachers are wonderfull and vary imaginative in their teaching styles. I can't imagine my son going to any other school!!!
Hi I'm so happy with this School, I have four daughters and sincerely my kids is so happy. The Principal, Teachers and all Staff are highly skilled. All is working hard. Is a wonderfull Family. I'm Volunteer and I like work with all the Staff. The kids have Student Store, Programs about DARE, Programs the Tutoring, Homework Club, Music, Programs about the Second Language, Workshops, etc. Really for the Kids is the Best School.
The teachers and staff at this school do an execellent job with the children that attend this school. I am very happy with the education my son received from this school.
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.
I love this school. My Mother, Myself and Brother, and our two children have all gone here. Staff and Academics are excellent.
This school is doing really great in our kids education.I Volunteer here and feel all staff is working like a family I feel happy I am a part of this family.Reading specialist worked hard with our son he is doing great now.I think Spangler is a best school in district.
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.
