This school is horrible. I came from another country where the kids have a notebook for each class and they have to do homework and we the parents are available to view their progress. At Donner Springs they give the students a homework packet that is download from the internet for the kids to complete and turn back on each Friday. I don't see any progress with my kids and the tutoring service o whatever they call it is horrible as well. I can't wait to get them out of that school. It's a waist of time and lack of knowlege. If you teach a class downloading material from internet and then give it to the students then I can be a teacher too.
Please tell me the review by the "gradtuing" 6th grader is joke. Please tell me no 6th grader in this school has such poor grammar and spelling skills. It is just a sick joke, right?

I absolutely love the teachers at Donner Springs, but the principal is HORRID! The woman is rude, cold and almost impossible to get ahold of. The school would be much better off without her.
My daughter had some difficulty with school because we move so often. We finally got her into Donner Springs and she was in Ms. Treadway's class (kindergarten) She is absolutely wonderful and as mentioned by someone else I believe they should have full day kindergarten. My youngest is starting kindergarten this year and I hope she will be in Ms. T's class.
I have 2 children attending Donner Springs, 1st grade and kindergarten. Both kids love going to school. Mrs. Treadway is an amazing teacher. I wish they had full day kindergarten instead of half and the communication between the school and parents could be better. Mrs.'T' is great at keeping parents informed, but other teachers could use a little help.
I have had three children attend Donner Springs (one graduated this year). My kids have enjoyed every teacher. I have had no problems with the administration. I read through the other reviews...I don't understand the negativity. You can't label an entire staff 'unqualified' if you've had 1 bad experience.
My daughter is in Mrs Hill's class and LOVES it. Shes a great teacher. Everyone is very friendly and helpful and the school is very clean :)
This school and its administation and Principal are the worst, unconcerned, rude and unqualified teachers I have encountered in Washoe County thus far!
Untrained staff for learning disability children. Not a safe school. Extremley concerned parent.
