This has been such a great experience for both of my children, we are sad to move onto middle school. The 7 rating is way too low. Every parent I speak to is so positive about there experience here. There are so many great teachers that truly care about their student's success.

My daughter loves this school. We just moved to Coral Springs and now we plan on staying because park springs has been such a positive experience for my daughter . Compared to her other kindergarten class , she has done a complete turn around . She is loving first grade and most definitely loves her teacher she is genuine . Park Springs is the best and we are so happy.

We are very happy with this school (it's our 6th year). All the teachers have been caring and good. I wish PSE went through 8th grade! Assistant Principal Ms Policastro is great!

Administration forms classes based on student achievement. Very hard on the teachers. Attention has to be divided in so many ways because too many students in one class are so needy. It was better when Ms. Kip was there. Each class seems to be fairly formed. Even the gifted class. All the teachers had the same types of classes.

Excellent school!!! My daughter has been attending Park Springs since she was in Kindergarten and our experience couldnt be better. Her teachers have all been extremely professional and its obvious that they put in the hard work and effort to give the students a top notch education. Im a teacher myself so I know quality when I see it. Aside from the excellent staff, I must say that the extras that the school provides (winter festival, musical performances, Tuesday Nite Live etc....) give us wonderful things to look forward to all year round. Kudos to Mrs. Sheib and Mr. Levitan for all the work they put in. They are truly exceptional. Administration is always visible and the school has a wonderful inviting look and feel to it. Park Springs is a gem and we are very lucky to be a part of it. Couldnt have asked for anything better for my daughter.

Parents need to take a more active, proactive role in their children's education. Teachers are not responsible for RAISING your child; just TEACHING him or her. If your child doesn't do his/her homework, don't expect him/her to be successful. And don't blame the school when he/she fails. Don't like the FCAT? Tell your state representatives, not the teachers/principal. We would do much better if parents worked WITH us instead of AGAINST us.

Both of my children have gone through Park Springs and we've had a wonderful experience. The teachers are fantastic, creative and caring. The new adminstration is doing what is in the best interest of the students. I know that my children have received a quality education and are well prepared for middle school and beyond.

The gifted teachers are very knowledgeable. You have to insist on educational testing though and not leave it up to the school. The front staff can be very rude to parents and they have a general lack of caring about student welfare especially in regards to whether they succeed at school.

My daughter has been at Park Springs for 2 years and has enjoyed every moment! The teachers are wonderful and provide a disciplined yet loving environment. As an active parent, I can personally say the Administration is open minded and receptive to new ideas. The Principal is involved and accessible. Park Springs has been a wonderful experience.

Park Springs Elementary school is by far one of the best elementary schools located anywhere in Broward County. The student to teacher ratio is outstanding. The teachers are very attentative to the specific child's needs. The school is located in one of the more desirable areas of Broward County, specifically Coral Springs.

If there is an A++++ rating, Park Springs deserves it. I have 2 children in the school. Ms Donahoe and Miss Judy (pre K) are exceptional and are two of the most caring, positive people you will ever find. Also can say that Ms Maughan deserves teacher of the year, every year, as she is also a phenomenal leader. Ms Foster, though she left, was also phenomenal. Don't forget Alyssa Stout (PTA), she is great.

My daughter moved here from another state in the middle of a school year, and did just fine. I would rate this school a 5 star if they did not put so much pressure on the students with the fcat's!!! You can not judge a child on one day of testing. I wish they put as much into year round teaching as they put in fcat prep!!!!

Mrs. Trejo is a great teacher not evento mention a great person! She teaches, cares, inspires, guides, disciplines, motivates...there are so many great things about her. I am glad the school has her as a teacher. The guidance counselor, vice and principal are always on top of everything. It has great parents involved too. My daughter has improved so much since she started there two years ago. Not only in fcat scores, but as an individual with great values. Kids learn by example. We are very happy to have her there. Thanks to all the Staff and a very special one to Mrs. Trejo!!

I just can't believe that my daughter is almost done with kindergarten. Ms. Librizzi has taught my daughter to read. She did not even know all her letters when she came to school. Now she is reading! I am so thankful for this school and her kindergarten teacher.

I pulled my kids out of Park Springs. The Principal was not very visible throughout the school. There were some very good teachers there, but I think they were under too much pressure to get the FCAT scores up. There was ton of FCAT prep and drilling, especially reading comp.

What a great school! My child is in first grade and has the most amazing, nurturing and loving teacher that has ever walked this planet...Ms. Foster! she has opened up my child's world. My child loves reading, writing and math. She gets very upset when her school day is over.

We moved mid-year to this school. At his previous school he was getting A's and B's consistently. Within two months, he was getting D's. Teachers were critical and yelled a lot in the classroom. If you are having trouble, you are left behind at this school. Pulled him out of this demoralizing atmosphere and put him into a private school. His GPA jumped back up to a 3.75 and he is doing very well. Counselors did not care. Principal did not care.

When my daughter attended Park Springs Elementary School I was thrilled, absolutely loved the school. Since moving up north and attending schools up here I realize how an 'A' school would actually be a 'D' school up here. All the parents are living in a bubble thinking their children are getting a good education in a so called 'A' school. I am posting this because I was in the bubble at one time and would have appreciated someone telling me.

Park Springs does a great job helping ESE students, as I have both a gifted child and a child with ADD. The campus is safe. The teachers are okay with communication, could be better of course. That's it.

My son's kindergarten experience with Ms. Librizzi was excellent...the next three years satisfactory. Involved parents,pleasant environment, helpful, polite office personnel. Probably true of all Florida schools now...teaching too focused on FCAT testing, and therefore, less interesting and creative...kids are frustrated, pressured and uninterested in FCAT preparation. More freedom to skilled teachers would improve overall experience.

My child is in 2nd grade and has attended since Kindergarten. My experience thus far has been mixed. She had an excellent teacher in K and now in 2nd. The first grade teacher was disorganized but 'loving', students loved her parents did not. I think the teachers are the most critical element to the learning process and for the most part, Park Springs has excellent teachers. The principal is relatively new and at first communications home were not very bountiful or timely, but that has improved this year. The PTA is very involved in the school and helps provide additional activities for the students. My only concern is with the 'crowding' issue. The school is well over the average size for the district and double that for the nation. They were supposed to add a new building for additional classes in 2004...and that building is not yet even started.

This school is the best. Parental involvement/volunteering is highly encouraged-a great way to really get to know the school. There is a real positive and fun school environment that is highly condusive to learning. I purposely moved to be in this school boundary.

The Principal likes others to handle her problems for her. Hard to get return calls etc. The front office staff tries to make you tell them, and if you persist you may get Assistant Principal to call you back, but never the Principal herself. It seems like Assistant Principal does all her dirty work for her. He is also very 'by the book', so it is hard to have a down to earth talk about your child. The former Pricipal allowed requests for teachers where this one does not. Do feel that they are trying to put students in classes with students at the same level. I use to love this school, but with the current administrative staff, it is just o.k. Most of the teachers are fantastic, though. Great school if your children are advanced intellectually and do not have any discipline problems at all. Otherwise, it is just fair.

Both my children go to PSE. I am very happy with the staff and nurturing environment. The staff (especially the Vice Principal) is very visible and approachable with any questions or concerns. They encourage parent participation and the children come first.
