Love, love, love this school! We transferred to this area after Sandy Hurricane and we cannot be happier! The teachers are great, the PTA is very active and the principle wonderful. My son has done great in all areas academically and is a happy kid!

This school is amazing! The principle really cares about the children and the teachers are wonderful. The guidance counselor has helped my son overcome many issues and truly developed a relationship with him. Extra help is available in math and reading for children that are struggling. I am going to miss this school when my son moves on to second grade next year. Highly recommend!!!!

Is an excellent school. My daughter learned to read in Kindergarden. She is now on first grade. I am very happy with teachers and the school program. I am going to miss this school since I am moving to PA.

This is my 7th year at J. Fred Sparke School. The programs they offer are amazing and a wonderful addition to the learning process. Parent involvement in the PTA is astonishing. I love Sparke

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

Oops! We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Public and charter school test scores for most states come from the state Department of Education. The most common reasons we might not have this data are either that not enough students took the test or that the school was recently opened, and its scores have not yet been reported.
