Such a great school with great leadership! My 6 year old is very happy there.
We have been in another county for almost 3 years.... Struggling to feel connected to our new, highly rated, school 's administration. We are a number there. Not enough space here to share the balls that have been dropped. We miss King Springs. We were cared for, academically and personally. Excellent teacher experiences (awesome librarians!) and the administration is engaged and responsive. They raised a flag for us, in kindergarten, (dyslexia) in the form of early intervention. Fancy new school has denied and delayed... kicked the can down the road, until we force their hand. Grrrrr!
Hands down...a wonderful school. My son will be in first grade. Kindergarten was amazing! He knows more than his private school friends!!!!!
My son is a rising 6th grader and will be moving on this year. When asked what he would change about King Springs, he said nothing. He will miss KSE but I'm sure he'll visit often! Thank you KSE for all the great years, K - 5!!
Great school. People really put a lot of effort to make this school on path to success. If you want to live is Smyrna whic is seeing a lot of growth and opportunity, King Springs is a great ES to put your child in. I'm glad to support this school. Keep up the great work!
We chose to put our son in King Springs for many different reasons. The school we were zoned for had an extremely low score (2 out of 10) on great schools, poor grades and was far from our jobs and our babysitter. When doing our research we saw all the great reviews on King Springs. Our son's first year was last year and he attended Kindergarten. I cannot stress how pleased we are with the school, staff and principal. We are thrilled that he will be continuing to go to King Springs and look forward to having all our children go there. This is truly a testament to what a great caring staff & involved parents can create. We love you King Springs!
Really miss King Springs. We moved out of district and could no longer attend the school. Of all the schools that my children have attended, King Springs is BY FAR the best one. A lot of diversity, so many community oriented activities and family feeling. The teachers are creative and keep the students excited about learning. Definately a school to be modeled after. It's hard for us to find a comparable school because we haven't found another one that matches. My son learned how to read from there before he started school!! I miss you King Springs. Keep up the amazing work!
I have been at King Springs for 3 years and it has been a great experience for my daughter. Even through the tough economic times they are trying to keep 'specials' programs strong. The teacher and parent comminucation and involvement is amazing! When so many around us are choosing privates school, I had my concerns but after choosing King Springs I have NO regrets.
King Springs is an amazing school! I have a child in Kindergarten, 2nd and 4th grade and I have been nothing short of pleased by the excellent teaching they've received these past two years. I hate that we are moving out of the district because I would love for our youngest to attend there in the fall. The teachers show genuine concern for the students and Principal Keeney is a superb leader! We will miss King Springs dearly.
involved teachers and parents - stict behavior environment - great for learning.
I have been sending my son to private school - this year we started King Springs. I have been so impressed! My son loves it. The Principal, the staff and the teachers are just amazing!!
King Springs has very good involvement from the community and an administrative and teaching staff that truly cares about being the best they can be.
King Springs is a wonderful and diverse school that encourages arts, physcial fitness, and technology as much as it supports a challenging academic curriculum. The teachers and the administration truly have the kids best interests in mind at all times. We love it!
I'm a parent of a King Springs kid, and I also substitute teach there. King Springs runs a tight ship and expects the best out of every kid. I've seen kids move in during the year and have specialized services in place for them within a week.
The Teachers are fabulous- the principal is amazing!! My kids are so happy, and so am I!!
The faculty/staff are genuine in their desire to help the children succeed - it's evident that it is more than just a job for them.
Absolutely amazing the teachers are phenomenal, class sizes are small, the principal is a born leader. Several other parents that had children at the Covered Bridge Schools as we did and left because the lack of leadership were talking and one parent said if you put the two schools side by side and said which school would you play $8,000 are year for. You would pick King Springs. My daughter s kindergarten class has 16 students a teacher and a paraprofessional and my son s 24 students two teachers and a paraprofessional. (We did not find this at any of the private schools we considered.) The staff including the principal knows all the children and their parents!!! The teachers are available to speak to parents and welcome parents in the classroom. . Every week they have something going on for families. The PTA is equally amazing as is the network of parents. After school is well structured and lead by professionals, the program offers music, Spanish and art at no additional cost. We were planning on continuing with private schools but are now glad that we only made the waiting list at St. Joseph Catholic school and decided against the other private school options in Smyrna (we visited, interviewed and was accepted at) because I doubt they could have provided a better education or sense of community that Kings Springs has.
From the principal to the custodians, everyone at this school is fantastic. Teachers are enthusiastic, the classrooms are a fun place to be as well as providing a loving environment in which to learn, and everyone seems to be committed to a common goal of making King Springs a great school. I have two children there now and will have a third there in a few years - we love King Springs and can't imagine sending our children anywhere else!
