NO Stars for Springview. We had our son transferred out because this school is horrible. It was a content nightmare. Teachers have favorites, the school staff is also bad. No one is friendly! There is no respect for parents who want to be involved with their child's education. Miami dade county schools should really reevaluate this school and the witch of the principles.
For starters, the Spanish program is useless.Students only do worksheets that they are given the answers to and write things down, afterwards we just talk. The best things about the school are the reading and science programs.Most of the teachers are really nice, but they pick favorites and some bully students to a certain degree and don't have justice for some students. Once, a student went into another's phone and sent a text to everybody saying f u and the student who's phone it was got in trouble.
My daughter started Springview Elementary School this year. She's in Kinder. My daughter is progressing very well. She's already reading level 1 and 2 books on her own. We absolutely love their bilingual program. Their teachers are excellent. I am in constant communication with both of her teachers whether it comes to her academics or just overall school need to know information.
My son went to Pre-Kinder and it's a great school. Teachers are great and they work with the parents. The staff is great. I had a great experience last year.
Springview is a wonderfiul school. I have 3 children, one has already moved to middle school. Springview did an excellent job preparing him for 6th grade. I have 2 that still attend. They have excellent teachers with strong leadership and strong administration. We also speak only english in our home. I am very pleased with the bilingual program. Another big key to success is parental cooperation and daily involvement. I really couldn't have asked for a better school. Blessings.
This school is horrible! I had my children transferred, because of how poorly the school is run. The BISOL program does nothing but hinder the children's learning experience. The district should really reevaluate this schools and its program. It is not benifical for the student or the parents.
This school has excellent teachers and a wonderful PTA. Parents and teachers alike are involved.
Springview elementary is a great! The school prepares students to function in a global society by offering instruction in both English and Spanish. In addition, the staff and learning community go above and beyond to meet the needs of the students. Working together with the PTA and the community we are able to garnish resources to assist our student's learning.
This school has been awesome for both my kids. The teachers are almost all local and live in the Springs. It's a bilingual school so all kids get half-day in Spanish.
So far this school has been great and being that my son is gifted shows the positive effort they make as a team. Thanks Springview teacher and staff!
Springview was great when I attended the school years ago, and I was fortunate to give my children the same opportunity; however, today the school has more to offer the children and the parents. I love this school.
Springview is a school that is located in a wonderful community with involved parents. The staff and administration is well qualified and is truly passionate about preparing our kids for the future.
I went there when I was a little girl and I'm also a teacher and live in the area. I would like to put my little girl and soon boy to come in that school also.
I love Springview Elementary because the teachers are the best, from PK to 5th grade. They take pride in teaching our kids and caring for their educational needs. This community school takes time to have the parents involved and up with their kids to be on track on their studies. Springview is a wonderful school.
the school and staff is a wonderful place but your gifted program needs a big make over the 5th graders are not ready for the 6th grade gifted program @ the middle school....
Wow. Where can I start ? My child attended Springview for the past 5 years. Last year we got a new principal and it's been great ! Ms.Dovale is very supportive and open to your ideas. The teachers need to be involved more and particpate more with the events that go on there.
Springview is the best school I have found in this community. I have done extensive research and found this school to be far superior. The bi-lingual program is an added plus. Great community participation and a warm enviroment for the children. Staff is family orientated and parent involvement seems to be very high. The quality of the teachers is outstanding. Special enriched after school classes as well as other programs are also a plus.
Although not known throughout the community Springview is run as 'Bilingual' school meaning 1/2day english 1/2spanish. If you live in the school boundries your children are automatically in bilingual program. It is a terrific program but should be publicized as a language magnet/choice school rather than a neighborhood school(no choice to not enter the spanish program.) Many students with learning disabilities have difficulties switching back in forth from englishphonics to spanishphonics or mathematics in spanish etc however other children flourish! (unfortunately,middle school does not compliment this program.)The bilingual program will penentrate every grade by 2008& began 4yearsago.2006/2007Springview 3rdgraders will be the school's 1stbilingual students to take the FCAT-the current 4th&5th graders are not in this bilingualprogram. Program is creating higher classroom size at neighboring schools rather than drawing in interested families due to lack of school&district informing the public. Springview-should consider-offering-2-bilingual-classes-per-grade and-2-typical-classes-taught-in-english-since-it-is-not-a-designated-magnet-program.
I believe that this class setting is too big for 1 teacher to handle.
I am very happy with Springview in general and mostly the teachers my sons have had to date. There does need to be more staff for the after care program. I find that one person helping 20 children with their homework is almost impossible. There should be at minimum 2 After Care personnel helping per grade.
