This is the best elementary school in Northern Illinois! They have the most talented teachers who are truly dedicated to their jobs, and they treat the students as if they were their own children. They have the best principal I have ever met, Mrs. Webb, who is very involved in every child's learning experience, knows all the parents and kids by name, and who will go out of her way to help you with anything related to your family or child! From the principal to the custodial staff, every one at Spring Avenue is top notch, especially Mrs. Jones who runs the office! My first set of twins just graduated 6th grade in 2014, and my second set of twins have now entered 1st grade. I wouldn't move them from this school for any reason ... if you want the best for your children, look no further than Spring Avenue School!

We moved to this neighborhood specifically so our son could attend Spring Ave when he was going into 2nd grade. He is now in 6th, his last year at Spring and we could not be happier with the experience. Class sizes are small and the school provides good grounding in all the basic subjects as well as an excellent gifted and advanced program for both math and english. Classes attend art, gym, computer labs and music and there is a very active parent community. Spring is a 'walking school' so all the kids walk to school and although it might not look as fancy or technologically advanced as some schools, the emphasis here is on teaching both the subjects and good lifetime study habits and skills. The principal Mrs. Webb is excellent- very accessible and a good administrator whom the kids seem to genuinely like and respect. I would recommend Spring Ave to any family.

Both our children, twins, have been in Spring Ave since Kindergarten. The teachers are terrific. Most of the teachers have been their long-term. The teachers and administrators are very involved in the children's education, take time and work with all of the students. The parents are involved in school activities, they also volunteer to help the students in areas such as, extra curricular activities, after school classes ie, science, astronomy, and sports. Parents volunteer for field trips, read to students, and even volunteer in the office if need be. There is a great working relationship between the parents, school board, teachers, and administrators, and staff. This is an ideal place to send your children to school.
