I have to say that the "Great Schools Rating" could not be more off. My son is going on his third year at Clear Spring and I love this school. The children are more than just a number here, the administration is awesome (especially the counselor Ms HInes). His teacher last year Ms. Finley is beyond awesome. We considered moving after his Kinder year because of the school rating but I want all of my boys to attend this school so they can experience truly being valued in a school environment. (These ratings only reflect test scores, this school offers SO MUCH MORE than that.)
Clear Spring Elementary is an excellent school. My kids love their teachers and all the staff as well. Their academics programs are very helpful. The music class has brought so much joy to my daughter, and the computer class has helped my son as well. My kids have been going there since Kindergarten and I have always been involed with there class, field trips, and programs. Always am up to date with the teachers. We couldn't ask for a much better school.
My nephew is handicaped and for the 4 yr.s he attended Clear Spring Elem. we have had the chance to meet a lot of the teachers first hand & they are very concerning people. If you have a 'special needs' child these people will be there to help you along. The nurse especially was very good at keeping in touch w/ my family whenever needed. The staff is wonderful. Now that my own daughter is attending the same school I have no doubt that she will be very well taken care of. So give your child a chance to become his/her own person & enroll them at Clear Spring Elem.. They will work w/ you to give your child the education they need for the future.
Mr son attendended this school for 3 yrs and did quite well. They offer a lot of extra help and tutoring to those who need it. The principle is wonderful and the school also utilizes a program to teach and encourage responsibility, self control, work ethic, trust attitude, and selflessness. I came from a private school not wanting to go public and was mostly pleased with what i found.
My two children attended here a couple years ago and it is the GREATEST school in the NEISD. The teachers/staff here make learning so much fun for the kids and my kids learned so very much there. There is a family atmosphere where each family is recognized by the staff and it is just a wonderful place. I wish we wouldn't have moved out of the boundaries of this school because I would place my children here again in a hearbeat.
