The staff at Spanish Springs Ekementary School work hard to assure each child receives a wonderful education. They push the kids hard, but offer support along the way. My son has gone from having very few friends to having several thanks to the dynamics his teacher has set up on the classroom. He no longer hates going to school, and this shows also on his academics. He went from reading below grade level to reading two years above. I'm very happy with the teachers at Spanish Springs Ekementary School.

This school is horrible and starts right at the top with the new principal Ms Dullanty! Like 90 percent of the teachers there, she is uninterested in the kids education and is just there because it's just a job. Forget going here if your child has any sort of disability because they will be totally discriminated against!

I am a student at Spanish Springs Elementary School, and I for one must say that parents don't know anything. There are teachers there at the cross walk, and now they do lock the doors. They have been ever since 2008. This is a wonderful school for acedemics. In 1st grade I've gotten A's, 2nd grade A's, 3rd grade A's and B's, 4th grade C's B's and A's, 5th grade A's except a B in Social Studies, and now in the present I have straight A's and all of my teachers are nice, but the P.E. teacher can be cranky. and the substitutes. But that's all I have to say, and students minds should have a part in the reviewing of the school.

After reading this review: I do not recommend this school! There are very few teachers at SSES that are nice and that actually like to teach. Most of them are just there for their paychecks. The administration turns a blind eye to everything and is not helpful in resolving issues. There are a lot of kids leaving this school because it is not a nice environment to be in.... I must say they took the words right out of my mouth!!! I even started K12 with my child just to get here out of this school.

I have been very pleased with the teachers at this school. The past several years have been very challenging for them and they have come through with flying colors. My son and daughter leave school almost every day feeling confident and having had fun.

I have to say that the safety at this school is lax. There are no cross walk attendants so when these children get out of school, they just walk out and right into the street. The doors are not locked when the children are in school either. The academics are amazing though.

The academics in this school are great. However, I am very disappointed in the lack of safety precautions in this school. The doors are left unlocked and it is common for parents or others to wander around unnoticed. Also, the school website has not been updated in years, so it is basically worthless. The school lacks organization. Overall, I am not very impressed with Spanish Springs Elementary.

I am very impressed with this school. I am a firm believer in 'It starts at the top'. The Principal set the pace and he is awesome! He and the Vice Principle are very involved with the students and they are always smiling. They have done such a great job and this shows in the teaching staff they have, which is also wonderful. My daughter has spent 2 years here and enjoyed every minute of it! They have set such a high standard. I only hope, this year, middle school is just as good.

My daughter has been at Spanish Springs for 2 years. I have been very impressed with most of the staff and teachers at this school. My child, in some ways 'marches to a different drummer' and has trouble in some areas if the 'cookie cutter' view of all learners and teaching methods is used. Spanish Springs staff have been open to my input as a parent. I have been extremely impressed with her teachers. Her teachers have innovative in their thinking and methods while covering 'the basics.' They took the time to know and appreciate my daughter's uniqueness while challenging her to work to her potential.

This school has made a fantastic impression on my child. The school and caring teachers are such a high quality - far above the average public school. They have helped my son to realize his maximum potential and have provided unique and interesting means for him to learn. The teachers at this school truly do care and always have time for the individual student and the parents. I only wish that my son could continue in this school throughout all of his schooling years. I have spoken with many parents who have said that their student s grades have risen dramatically as well as their interest and enthusiasm to learn! This is a phenomenal school! I have had my son in private school, and I must say that he has achieved greatly since he has been a student of Spanish Springs Elementary! He has excelled in areas that were quite troublesome before, and now has a passion to learn and read that he never possessed before. The staff members in the office and the principal are outstanding! They always take the time for each child! Once a month as an award for outstanding efforts in school the principal takes one child to lunch! He even takes the time to personally congratulate the children and also lends them an open ear. He is a very busy man as well as all of the staff, but they all make it their top priority to help the children grow. This school deserves national recognition!!
