I currently attend Springwater Trail High Scool, and honestly, I love it here. The school just feel's so welcoming and the teachers actually help the students. I went and visited Barlow recently, for a journalism project, and found that I easily got lost and confused in the halls and in classes. Sometimes bigger schools aren't the best option, but thats just my opinion.
This school was doing rough until recently. The scores on standardized tests have been raised which shows effort on both sides of the story. The school has recently implemented a new basis of grading in which students must complete ALL assignments or they will not receive a credit, in spite of what their grade is. That is where the school has lost tough with the students. There is simply no "leg room" in the school, and it is believed students standardized test scores will plummet.
I'd give it a 7. The school has solid academic program. A good alternative for those that don't want a larger academic experience.
The Staff and student are so kind and helpful. Everyone was welcoming, on my first day, and i thought i never had a friend, know i feel like that i have friends. The staff and student, will always be there when i need them. i really feel welcome. I was always been bullied around, since i came to Springwater, i have friends and im going to do the thing i want to do in the future. Thank you Springwater trail High School! thank you Staff and Student!
I have never been to a school like this, where the staff are so student-focused. I've seen students absolutely flourish and shine here, where they were doomed to be defeated by the system at their former schools. The work that students and staff do here is most definitely worth the recognition!
Springwater made me believe in friends again. I never had friends before STHS, but when I got there, everyone was so nice, and they welcomed me into the school. STHS really deserves this award, the people are fantastic, and the teachers really help you.
Springwater helps bring out the best in each of us: students and staff
The teachers at this school are great mentors for the students. They know each student by name and show each student the attention they need and deserve! STHS goes above and beyond the 'call of duty' in order to help each students succeed. It is like a private education in a public school system!
Springwater has helped me so much. The teachers are so amazing they really care about us and help us with our everyday problems. Thank you teachers for everything you have done for us
I've been here from day one, and I know this is a very important place for all who attend here, because students get the help and care needed to succeed. There are numerous examples of kids who would have been just another number. However when they come here they tend to fit in and blossom with confidence and determination. Without this school some would just be lost and become another statistic in our society.
I love springwater trail high school because of the smaller classes, the smaller school (so I cant get lost), and because it is easer to get to know the kids that are here!
It is a very awesome school with a wide variety of very colorful people from all walks of life!
If I didn't get excepted to the school i was not going to be going to high school. And it is much easier here to ask a teacher if you need help on homework or just to ask a question. And I also like it because it is a small school.
Springwater Trail High School is a great school because it is a small environment and students can really focus on their school work and get help from teachers if they need it.
Springwater trail has great teachers who really care about the success of their students.
I love Springwater Trail because they love my son, and he loves it there. He is now getting A's and B's where before he was getting Cs and Ds. When I went to Parent Conference they actually knew all about my son and his interests. The principle gave him a job after school and he took alot of pride in that.
Springwater Trail is a place where both academic and social learning takes place. The small school concept helps those who need more one-on-one time from their teachers. Every student is a person at Springwater Trail. Teachers know who they are, what their needs are, and how they can be helped.
Springwater is such an amazing little place. It's a public, small choice high school that has fostered an amazing community. If I had to say one thing about Springwater (students, parents, teachers, and staff) I would say the thing that unites us all is caring. People associated with STHS really care about the well-being of our students.
