My son has been a student for 2 years and we are looking forward to the next 3 to come! An amazing school and great loving teachers and staff. PTA is awesome and super on it.

If you have to send your child to public school, SPE is not a bad option. There are some wonderful teachers in the gifted program. However, there are a couple duds that are cruel to the children, yelling and having unrealistic expectations for them. Lots of pressure to perform. There are some great parents involved in the PTA and FOSPE, which make huge contributions to the school both financially and with their time. That is what makes this school the special place that it is. Unfortunately, approximately half of the school is out of district and it overcrowds the classrooms. The principle turns a blind eye to it because many of the out of district parents have children that are high performers or they are willing to donate their time and/or money to the school. There are compelling arguments on both sides of this issue as to whether these students should be allowed to stay. Slowly, more 'in district' parents are getting more involved though and the out of district parents are no longer becoming a necessity. Hopefully this momentum keeps up and the principal can have faith that the school will be fine without all of the out of district kids and those of us that live in district can benefit from lower teacher/child ratios.

I have 2 kids in the school and we love it! We've been there for 2 years now and My experience has been great from the start. The teachers, the office staff, media center personnel, cafeteria ladies are kind and attentive. We have a strong PTA that truly cares for the school and many involved parents. The school is clean and organized. This is true and real review from a parent.


Teacher effectiveness: Disagree


- a
The teachers are great people but their curriculum in reading and math is terrible. My daughter memorizes stuff for the tests, but doesn't learn anything at this school. The only learning I see happening with her is at home.

Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much! I strongly believe that children in elementary school should never receive homework. My daughter spends at least an hour each day on homework. She is a child and needs to play - not spend her time on homework.
