I don't have many nice things to say about Sprague school. My children ( grades 3rd, 2nd and K) have only been going here for 5 months and its been nothing but problems. My children have never had problems interacting with other students until coimg to this school; now every day we have to deal with offensive language, thier personal property being stolen from there desks or bags and when an adult is notified they are told nothing can be done. Teachers and stuff are respectful to parents but seem to drop the ball when dealing with the students. My children are under challanged academically and I am going to try to get them out of Srague school as soon as possible.

This is not a good school. The administration is disorganized and as a result has missed out on beneficial programs and opportunities for their students. The teachers I have are simply putting in time and are not true educators. If you are only interested in appearances then the school is nicely decorated, clean, and cheerful looking. But it is no surprise that the students have low test scores and poor overall long term outcome. If you have no experience with a really good school then you may be fooled by Sprague.

My son has been attending this school since he was in first grade and with every step of the way his teachers have been understanding and nurturing. They also pushed him when they beleived in him. There aren't enough words to describe this school. It will sadly be missed. I thank all the faculty and staff that has helped me mold him into the respecful person he is today!

Sprague's school count with teachers that are responsible to providing structures techniques to aid her students to learn. I love how the teacher used many hand-on- activities to apply the lesson and reviewed later on. Most of the teacher encouraged cooperative learning and peer-tutor. They also used learning modes such as audiocassettes, computers and visual materials to aid the studenet to learn. I consider Sprague teachers are warmth and supportive in many areas. Teachers talked to the students in a respectful and courtesy tone of voice. I admire the willigness some of the teacher had to be learners. I observed them to take the opportunity as a challenge to learn new inforamtion. Most of the classroom are beautiful decorated. The classroom exhibited students interest and accomplishments. Rules are posted in clear places and visible to students. To reinforce behavior, the teacher use many positive strategies. Sprgaue is a great school.

This school is an incredible place to attend. I have had my grandmother, mother, brother and sisters, and now my children attend this wonderful school. You learn so much and the teachers are an incredible inspiration to us all. I think that there should be a lot more schools like this one. I have had great success within my career, and i have attended at top rated college and hoping to have a degree in forensic science.
