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.
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.
I agree with both posts. Springview Elem. needs to be renovated, very old and dirty. That being said, I have two kids attending that school since Pre-K. My son has been failed time and time again from the lack of caring from some teachers and extreme lack of communication between the parents and teacher. I am very disappointed with the school system in Miami, very poor! I too am thinking of moving to Martin County (ie Stuart, Palm City.. ) up north, where all schools are A+ rated and kids have a different upbringing/education then the kids in Miami and teachers are move engaged in the students progress... Martin County here I come!
I agreed with the previous post. Unfortunately we had a horrible experience with the office staff at springview, the person in charge of admisions was extremely rude. It is sad to have such negative experiences in a school that is an A+. We really hope the school makes some changes. We love Miami Springs,however we are planing to move to a better school district. Our daughter is currently enrolled in a private school.
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.
