Sand Springs has a great vice principal who is always cheerful, great to work with. The resource teacher Mrs. Burnham goes the extra mile with my son. I have however as noted below.. had issues with the school psychologist as well... as recently as a few weeks ago. It is my personal opinion that she doesn't take into consideration the bigger picture before acting hastily. It was a very disappointing experience which also caused my child psychological trauma. I am not sure if the lds thing is or is not a factor but ( as stated below)... other than her jumping to conclusions... I just wasn't super impressed. My sons teacher is very caring and goes out of her way to help my child and encourages him to succeed. Over all the majority of the staff is excellent and should be applauded minus a few individuals who just need to think before they jump to conclusions. Over all it's a decent school experience.. just nothing over the top excellent to rave about.

If your child has psychological services at Sand Springs Elem. with the school psychologist, you should consider outside therapy before allowing her to evaluate or counsel your child. She has shown extremely poor judgement. She causes more psychological harm to her students than help. She continuously uses coercion with her students to get them to say things that justify her own negative personal agenda. She does not take the Ethical principles of Psychologists and code of conduct seriously. I am very sad for any child who is counseled by this individual, she clearly has personal issues. I was warned about her from other parents in the school who felt she discriminated against non lds families, and created issues where their were none to begin with. I wish I had listened to their warning, this woman has done great damage to my child ( and others), which is irreversible and now requires outside help. I have lost my faith in this school and trust in this particular individual. Very disappointing experience. ( posted this info on the other schools site that she works for) interesting comments at the other school as well)

School has a great Spanish Immersion program, the music department could use some" real" talent. The Christmas sing along program is a joke, and they have few parents who show up. The pta does an anti fundraiser which is lazy, they don't come together as a school, as parents, administration and students to raise money for anything worth while. The administration is incompetent and I wouldn't trust them to train a pet let alone teach a child. If you move to the area please put your child in a charter school.

I am really impressed with our experience at Sand Springs. I was hesitant about the year round schedule but it is working out great for our family. The school is great at communication and its always making different ways to stay in the loop. The teacher we have is so well educated and well versed in educational philosophy and curriculum we trust her implicitly. We'd love it if our son could stay with her indefinitely. The school has a lot of amazing community involvement. They seem to have a very active PTA which I appreciate. We appreciate the efforts made on the staffs part to address any and all concerns we have brought up. We also appreciate being made aware of any issues/events/drills going on at school that may interest our child.

I love this school! My son goes here after we moved recently and we have nothing to say but praise for the excellent teachers and faculty. The school has a great layout and has adapted well to the year-round schedule to accommodate the growing population.

I LOVE this school and all the teachers and staff!! They really care about the kids and help them along! If it weren't for such great teachers, my son wouldn't have gotten as far as he has!!

We've lived all over the US and this has been one of the best schools we've attended. The teachers have been good to work with. Concerns are not brushed under the rug, and there is a high amount of parental involvement. Office staff is okay. I only wish for a stronger music program, but I believe budget doesn't allow for it.

This school is just great! It has a Spanish Immersion program that is fabulous. This is my son's K year in the Spanish Immersion and he's already picking up so much. The staff is amazing and the parent involvement is high. This is one of few the public schools that I would allow my children to go to.

I have been impressed with most of the teachers that my 3 children have had. They have been kind and have taught them well. They have a great reading specialist who has worked with my youngest son in a small group of other kids. The communication from the school to the parents is not very good. That is really the one complaint I have.
