The quality of education is not in question here. It is the culture of the school itself. The environment for discipline at this school is extremely harsh. It is not uncommon to hear teachers yelling in their classrooms or directly at students in the halls, using derogatory language and talking down to students. I mentioned to the vice principal a situation I overheard and the response was that the students were different in this classroom. My mental response was, "So what, that gives the teacher the right to treat children in that manner?" As soon as I can, I will pull my children out of here.

I have one daughter who completed the 4th grade and another who has completed the 1st grade this past year 2009-2010. Through the years, we have had several great teachers and a few that fell a below my expectations. The schools overall are great and very clean. The parent link phone system works well and the website is very informative.

Springtown Elementary is a great school. The teachers are wonderful and have done such a great job with all 3 of my children. All of my children have been top AR readers due to the support they get from thier teaschers and the curriculum.

This is a wonderful school, my daughter and son have both attended. The only fault is transportation. The teachers are involved with parents and with the children one-on-one basis. The classrooms are structured and they have a reward program along with discipline. They are pretty good on new technology as well as all other activities. I would recommend this school to anyone.

The teachers are some of the best teachers in the area. But due to administration rules and changes, I choose to home school my children.
