The school is very well managed by thier principle .The procedures and policy choices are exceptional ,my child is learning,safe,happy with his school
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.
Thanks to the Clackamas ESD and Spring Mountain, our autistic son is doing fabulous and attending a general education classroom this year! We will be sad to leave this school.
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.
Our family is very happy with Spring Mountain. The teaching staff uses student-centered practices and the office staff keeps communication open.
Our daughter has attended Spring Mountain for the past four years. The faculty and staff are excellent. Our daughter has thrived at this school. Parental involvement is great and valued by the administration.
Parent volunteer is amazing, all the teachers are incredible, the PTA is helpful and the principal is highly qualified. My kids have thrived in the classrooms, I would not consider ever moving out of district until they are done with this school!!
Principal can be cold to parents but the teachers do the best with what they can.
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.
We really like our school.Our kids are happy. But I must admit the new principal brings no 'life' to the school.Hopefully the new asst. principal will fill that need.
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.
Horrible Principal who has really downgraded quality of school. Parent Involvement is not encouraged.
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!!
