I moved my child to Sperreng from a private school because of bullying. I was apprehensive about the move, but after the first week, my child had so many friends and loved her teachers. My child has so much more self confidence. It truly was life changing for our family. The teachers are top notch. Everyone really cares about the quality of the education and developing the "whole" person. The Lindbergh district as a whole is fantastic!

Sperreng is a good school, if you look at it in a numbers sense. It does have a lot of problems. One is it's lack of help for any above average kid. We get a decent education, but there is a lot more issues our staff do not want to adress. Our principals are really bad. We do though, have amazing band, orchestra, and choir.

You forgot to mention Sperring was awarded The National Blue Ribbon of Excellence and state awards as well. We are very proud of Sperring and all the Lindbergh schools. My children went to Saint Louis City schools previously, No contest. They have done much better in the Lindbergh School District.
