Discipline is old fashioned and absolutely ridiculous and its not just "parents" having issues! Other than standing on logs for punishment if your child is late for school they cant even buy ice cream! Yes thats a small problem but I just dont see my children being late as being their fault it is clearly at parents fault but they get punished for it? Whats the lesson here? I cant wait to remove my children from this school!

Obviously that parent has some issues that should have been addressed further with administration. I am also a parent of two children at this school. True, a child may have to stand and miss some recess for not doing homework, etc... (not stand on a log - there are large railroad ties surrounding the mulch. Some children CHOOSE to stand there.) And, of course flip flops or heavy boots (for example, are not appropriate for gym. And, PE teachers do not punish students by taking recess time. This unhappy parent does not have his/her facts straight. Yes, this school is run with rules and regulations, for the safety of the children. Yes, it may inconvenience some parents to have to follow the rules, again, for the safety of the children. With a school this large, it must be firmly structured. My son and daughter have loved it here, and I would not want them to go any where else! I will be sad next year when my oldest goes to middle school!

Not a fan of Twin Springs. I had heard wonderful things about the school. What I have found is an inability to work with young children. They have very rigid rules (including making children stand on logs @ recess for any number off offenses, to include forgetting to do homework, doing homework incorrectly, wearing the wrong shoes to gym, pretty much anything "wrong." I have spoken with new and old principal about these types of behavior, and they were both approving of it, even though none of these punishments are documented anywhere as part of their general behavior policy. Just not a good place for kids, when kids need a good place to learn.

My son use to go to Twin Springs and he loved it. From the pond in the front of it (that adds style since there logo is a dolphin) to the individual hallways for every grade. He loved the fact that they had a play ground that was ment for older kids that can't pick on little kids when there playing outside. So the little kids can play happily on there playground. He loves to play baseball and lucky for him the have a huge baseball field. 5 stars & 2 thumbs up Twin Springs!
