The primary teachers are great. However, there is an over abundance of heavily accented bilingual teachers aids. While this may not be a major issue for some, it gets to be a major issue when there are the ones in charge of helping students read and spell. Another issue is lack of help when a student has a learning disability. And forget about trying to get a call back from the person in charge of learning disability testing. The nurse is very rude and loves to boundry stomp on a parents wishes and rights. The principle is a very nice woman, but could stand to make some changes in staffing and maybe get some fluent english speaking teachers Aids to help those students who do not speak spanish and still need some extra help. Ms. Howell teaches Kindergarten and is simply amazing-very sweet, very helpful, such a smart lady and has not lost her spark and love of teaching, my son absolutely loved and enjoyed her class... My opinion though, dont move to springfield, dont put your kids in springfield schools. The whole district is terrible overall.
