My children have attended this school for 5 years now. What a wonderful environment!! From the top down, everyone is fantastic! Their goal is to teach the kids to be kind, safe and responsible. To themselves and to each other. The Principal, Mr Long, is just a fabulous leader. The PTA works so hard to have so many fun and community building events. I truly believe that this school offers a wonderful foundation of education for my kids to build off of. I encourage you to visit this school and see for yourself!

Spring Mountain is an excellent school. The staff takes the time to understand each child's needs. The principal greets every child by name and is well loved by the community. If a child is struggling academically the school has a wonderful group of specialist available to assist them. Like any school parent involvement is required to ensure that your child receives a well rounded education.

We recently purchased a home in Happy Valley because we wanted our son to attend school in North Clackamas. Spring Mountain elementary is a wonderful school. The secretary, principle, teachers and bus drivers go above and beyond to make children feel welcome. During the summer we had a surprise visit from the principle Mr Long and my son's new kindergarten teacher Mrs. Turner. They wanted to say hello and meet us before school started. They try and visit every student who attends school there. When I was concerned about walking to the bus stop on our busy street, they changed the stop and now pick my son up at our house. The bus driver has greeted my son by name since the first day of school. The class sizes are large, but the teachers do an amazing job. After just 1 month of school my kindergartner was writing his numbers to 100 and reading. The principle gets to know each child. He spends time dressing up as zero the hero in my son's class, making the kids laugh. They all love him. I feel so blessed to be able to send my child to such a wonderful school, where he looks forward to going every day.

Our new Principal is amazing. He has lifted the school up in spirit and academics. The staff appears relaxed and happy. They constantly share this feeling with the students. I couldn't be happier than to have my kids here.

This truly is a great school. The teachers, staff and parents are all completely involved with the children's education & school experience. This is our 3rd year at Spring Mountain and we couldn't be happier.

Office staff and Nurse were very helpful and understanding of my son's medical needs. The Teacher is very friendly and helpful as well. The parking issue is not good, drop off can be a harry 15 mins at it's best just to drop off. Overall experience with school staff has been good, this is our first year as a kinder there.

I would not send my worst enemy to the school. The principal is uncooporative and the school has really suffered under the new administration. It is sad to see how fast a school can go downhill. My daughter will be going elsewhere next year!

Working with the administration can be very frustrating for parents. The principals attitude can be hostile at worst, unfriendly at best. The teachers frustration with the administration was palpable and one can only hope will improve in the future.

Poor parent-teacher communication. Parking is a nightmare. My child took the bus , in three ocassions after the staff was notified and told specifically to hold child at school.. I question the safety of our children!

My son, Jordan, loves Spring Mountain Elementary. We recently moved from Iowa and we were impressed by the administration, staff and curriculum. Everyone welcomed us withh open arms and made sure Jordan felt right at home. He loves his teachers, new friends and the Galaxy Pizza on the Wednesday lunch menu! --Beth & Cory

Spring Mountain has an overwhelming amount of parental support, community support and great teachers. I am so happy we made the move from the Reynolds School District to the best school district in the state.

Nice facility, very limited diversity, (race/ethhnicity/socioeconomic class). A lot of assumptions are made based from the mainstream prototype (median household income of $97,500) thus ignoring and not addressing diverse needs of some folks who do not fall within the mainstream.

This is a beautiful school with a nice layout on wonderful grounds in an inconspicuous location of a beautiful neighborhood. The only problem with this school is the parking lot, which was poorly planned. Whenever possible have child take the bus. Parent drop off is a nightmare!!
