Teachers and entire support staff (from the new principal to the wonderful custodial staff) have been more than supportive toward our children...showing them lots of love and attention. They are more than willing to help kids with their struggles and acknowledge their strengths. The "Student of the Week" program is outstanding and a real ego boost for kiddos! We are very pleased with High Springs Community School!!! :)

I went to this school K-8 and it was a great school then and it is a great school now. I have 2 sons who go there. I love the teachers, they are friendly. Never had any problems so far! Great school! Go Hawks!

I went to this school for eight years (grade 1-8), and I have to say the teachers and students are sooooo respectful. Everyone is so academically smart and so friendly. I can promise any parent that they will most certainly never regret taking their child to this outstanding school. Go HSCS Hawks!!

High Springs Community School is a very traditionally minded school. I have found there are a few innovative teachers sprinkled in the mix but as a whole the school lacks fresh and current practices. Most classes are structured with the same type of environment that was used to teach your great grandmothers....this does not prepare todays child for tomorrows world. At the middle school level students are offered extremely limited elective options. At best this is an average school. I have found the focus is *teaching to the test* and most teachers are not focused on inspiring children to be active and motivated learners. Compared to the neighboring schools, who are failing to meet adequate yearly progress, this school is the best option but by all means do not expect energetic and cutting edge educational trends at this school. The atmosphere may change over the next few years as soon as some of the tired and *old school* teachers retire and are replaced with those who WANT to teach and see kids excited to be learning.

Both my children have gone to ANLC since they were 5 years old. ANLC is a school where the children come first. Each child is encouraged to do their personal best without being labeled as the smart or dumb kids. The teachers are highly skilled and work hard to bring out the best in each child. The principal is kind and knows each child by name. She is a great example of a leader and I will miss seeing her everyday as my daughter graduates this year. Thank you ANLC for bringing out the best in my children and giving them the encouragement and confidence they need to go out into the world!'

My children moved here from a South Florida school. Yes, there isn't that much Cultural diversity but both my elemtary and middle school children love it. The teachers are wonderful and caring. The Administration always has time for the parents. It is a small school but with very good integrity. My children have learned so much. The school could use a little remodeling.




- a
Cultural influences, second-languages, arts and diversity are not promoted. There are no resources for children who do not fit this schools 'norm' or its very specific student preferences.
