My daughter started Kindergarten this year and two months into school she is doing great! We get weekly updates from her teachers and I've even received personal emails during the day from her teachers just letting me know how she is doing.

This is our second year at the school. We have had excellent teachers. The PTO is very active in the school. The leadership team at the school is very strong as well. L

Spouts Springs School of Enrichment is a great school. The teachers are kind and loving to the children. The administration is caring and helps with whatever comes up to do what is best for the students. My child is happy and learning at the school. Clusters are fabulous, my child looks forward to clusters and has learned so much.

Spout Springs is an average school, at best. You will always believe this as long as you do not have to interact with the administration or advocate on behalf of your child. Once you have to do either of these things, you will realize that this is an average school with a weak leader who does nothing to correct the wrongs even when he is aware of them.

This is the first and last year one of my children will attend Spout Springs Elementary School in Hall County. I am very disappointed in the lack of communication, the focus on learning, and the leadership by the administrative team. Teachers on this grade level have not once informed parents of current curriculum, no biweekly newsletters have come home, and grades are hardly given. Small group instruction is not used. After missing approximately 2 weeks of school, administration has added an extra 20 minutes of recess a day (now 50 min.) which now takes more time away from learning. Class time per subject is now down to 45 min. Little if any homework is given. When emailing teachers on my child's grade level communication is slow and responses lack information. Most emails forwarded by teachers regarding anything administrative related states "take concerns up with your child's teacher." When dealing with the assistant principal, she is very short, matter of fact, and is not helpful. My child has a learning plan and she simply did not want to have to implement it due to lack of staffing.

We love Spout Springs. My girls are excited about learning, especially science. They love cluster day , and I love that they get extra learning opportunies included in their schooling. The principal is very visable and involved with the students. We have had several teachers go above and beyond for us. We are always welcome at the school and even though there are 800+ students at the school, the ladies at the front desk know who we are and who our children are. We moved here out of state and we are so thankful we chose Spout Springs Elementary for our children.

My daughters have had great teachers at this school. Both girls have exceeded on testing and report cards. I've been pleased with the communication and support from their teachers.

My child has been going to this school for 3 years. He had one teacher who was great! The other 2 teachers have been terrible. I believe they are just riding out time for their pension. My child has been subjected to continous bullying and despite my many calls to the prncipal, nothing has ever been done. Nothing. This year my child's class was told to give thei best guess on the Science portion of the CRCT tests because she had not been able to teach them all of the curriculm. A third grade teacher has been the absolute best teacher I have ever encountered. 2 years later my child still wants to bring her gifts for the holidays. I can only speak for the teachers my child has had but they were absolutely terrible. The students are forced to walk (coporal punishment) instead of having recess for whatever reason the teachers deem. This may be due to talking excessively or not returning a parent signature and anything in between. Other than the few liunch aides in the lunch room, the only persons in charge is assigned students in the class. The two in my childs class taunt some students into talking and then write them up. I am looking at alternative arrangements next year.

I have to agree with the previous blogger. The school does have some good teachers; However, a few other should not be allow to teach. As far as the principal, my tax money is being wasted. If a parent ever have a concern about a teacher and the treatment towards the students, the principal will talk down to you and will make you feel inferior. Responding to a previous blogger, I don't care how Christian anyone of these teachers are, some of them are very fake and unprofessional. In addition, the school is always asking for money and if you don't participate your child will be left out and unpopular on any of the extra attention and will not be a part of the extra pictures or recognitions throughout the year.

This is our first year at SSES and we are very happy here. My son who is in kindergarten hated pre-k but now loves going to school every day. Mrs. Waycaster is a great K teacher and constantly in touch with the parents either through notes, phones calls or emails. We love it here.

I think that SSES is a good school and teachers do a good job. I am not real imoressed with what I have seen from the new leader so far. He is out of the building alot and seems that the other principal is doing most of the work around the campus. With that said, my kids love their teachers and 3rd grade has been a great experience for her. I will continue to support this school, but be a little skeptical of the new guy.

Dr. Gibbs did a great job setting the school on a clear path. So far, my children's teachers all seem well-qualified, welcoming and approachable. We look forward to another good year at SSES. lisa a

The area is changing and growing, with that comes increased demands on the teachers and principals to exceeded in advancing the school. The former principal made great strides to create a more professional environment and added new specials class, Spanish, which helps SSES to compete with surrounding counties. He also began grouping children based on levels and abilities so that all children can do the best at their own individual levels. Only complaint, discipline was not what I expected from any school. Be it county wide or just in this school, discipline should be key to a structured and safe learning environment. I have personally been pleased with most of my children's teachers. I sincerely hope that the progress Gibbs started will not be hindered. Thanks SSES!

Overall a great school, my child has been there since kindergarten. The teachers are great, they all seem to try hard to relate with the children and parents. However there is room to improve. With the area growing ever so quickly the 'it's who you know attitude' should diminish. The administration is not as strong as when the old principal was there, however the new one is so young and moving on.

I have found Spout Springs Elementary School to be a nurturing environment in which my child has grown, made friends and found academic challenges. The teachers and staff made great strides to accommodate each childs needs while displaying a high standard professialism. The students build character and learn how to adapt to society. The children help one another and I love how the staff encourages interaction between the students. This is a gem of a school!

I cannot say enough about this wonderful school. I have had three children in this school (two are still there). My children are very happy here, both with their teachers and with the administration. I have been very pleased with the education my children have received and the support from the teachers at Spout Springs. It's a shame all schools aren't this wonderful!
