This school is amazing. Period, I graduated in 2013 and to this day I still think of the school. That school has maintained its perfect A school record. Yes the school is old but the teachers and staff are caring, kind, and so thoughtful. I was there from kinder to 5th grade. I don't know what some parents say now the school is bad dirty and that the staff are rude and gossip because it isn't true. If you want to put your children in this school I highly reccomend it

Están muy preocupados, por el equilibro entre los niños, enseñarles los valores familiares excepcionales y tienen mucha atención con los niños con discapacidad.

Una gran escuela su personal está muy bien capacitado, a nivel de exigencia para los alumnos se ve la evolución a nivel académico muy elevada al ir pasando las semanas y los exámenes estatales se ven los resultados, la pequeña objeción es que deben un poco modernizar sus instalaciones el Distrito escolar.

SOME teachers and members of the staff are beyond rude. Like walk past you in the hallway and not say hi rude. Like gather in groups of 4 or 5 and gossip about students parents rude. Like laugh in lunch about how a single mother was crying to one of the teachers when she was speaking about her ex husband walking out on them and how hard it was rude. Kids are great, they actually leave home learning something but some of these women (because there is no male faculty except the coach) need to learn manners or re evaluate their worth in the world. Their pompous "know it all" attitude is laughable. Some have maybe spent simply too much time with the children they are teaching and started revolving their personalities and manners around them apparently. This is an honest review, and if someone is in doubt they need not go farther than a few steps away from a group of teachers to hear the negative comments they spew from their mouths. Principle and other office staff is great, including a FEW teachers here and there.

After reading a few of the most recent negative reviews I've decided, as a parent who's daughter attends this school, to also post my review because I find some of the recent reviews unjust. My daughter is currently in 2nd grade. She has been enrolled in Springview since kinder. I have NEVER had a bad experience so far. - In kinder she had Dr. Turner and Ms. Santos as teachers. - In 1st grade she had Ms. Hermida and Ms. Fernandez as teachers. - Currently she has Ms. Hernandez and Ms. Menendez. With all 6 teachers I have always been able to communicate, if not in person, definitely by phone and ALWAYS via email. Never has there been a lack of communication, ever. From day 1, every school year I have informed the teachers that YES, I am that parent that is involved, that does ask questions, that does check the parent portal, that does have her phone set up to receive emails whenever grades are posted, and if anything they THANK ME for being involved. Ms. Terry and Ms. Natalia in the front office are always welcoming and friendly if you ever have a concern. Regarding homework, I do not think that it's too much. My daughter has dance class 3 times a week (during the week) and is always able to come home and finish her homework in a timely manner, has dinner and is in bed by 9pm. Regarding the school grounds, yes the school was built in the 50's and needs an overhaul, but it's always clean. The revamping of the school is not a decision that is left to the teachers and principal, the school district is the one that decides that. Take it up with the school district.

My son spent 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade here. The teacher in first grade Ms. Fernandez is out of this world extraordinary. Second and third grade gifted was awful. Poor communication, lack of effort from teachers, dirty school...honestly not a good school in an upper class neighborhood. I don't understand the grading of a ten because honestly on many levels it is lacking. Academically it is lacking, administratively it is lacking, in cleanliness it is lacking... Not a good school choice in my opinion.

Teacher effectiveness: Neutral


- a
They listen to your perspective. However, I never saw a positive outcome to any concerns discussed by any parent.


Amount of homework: Disagree


- a
Kids are not meant to spend all day once they arrive at home doing homework. Teaching is meant to occur in the classroom. I understand the importance of reinforcement. However, when your child spends more than three hours doing homework and you need to teach them how to complete an assignment, a lesson was not taught.

Develops character: Disagree

My son did not grow at all while he was here. He was in a gifted class and as far as having concerned and involved counselors and teachers it is lacking.
