This school is FANTASTIC! We moved from a different area in Florida where we had our daughter in private school & were reluctant to the idea of "public school" especially given the fact our daughter has some "special needs." But we are into our 3rd year & could not be happier! The teachers & administration are wonderful to work with. They want the very best for ALL students! My advice is to simply involve yourself in the school (even if it's just a couple of hours a year). The PTA is not "demanding" of your time & getting involved is easy! I would not trade schools for anything... ESPECIALLY if you have a child in the special needs program! The level of excellence at Spessard in this specific area is one of a kind!
SLHE is a very good school. They engage and challenge my child academically and parent involvement is welcomed. Administration is the best in the county. However, SOME of the teachers are very rude and unprofessional. I was warned by other parents in the county who opted to have their children in other schools because of this issue.
