Wonderful school. The principal is very involved, and they work hard to challenge the gifted kids as well as help & encourage the children who need help. Teachers are very good, communication is excellent. Lots of school spirit here and I am very pleased that we moved into this school district!

Truly an amazing school. Our daughter is in second grade and our experience as a family has been nothing short of spectacular. We couldn't be happier with the staff and quality of education our daughter is receiving.

I disagree with the comment about the school not being helpful to children with disabilities including ADD, etc. My son and the son of a friend are getting marvelous attention and extra help. The school has gone out of their way to help them in all areas of need. I LOVE THIS SCHOOL!

I like Springfield Park Elementary School because it has teachers that care. Also, it has a diverse population and I think that is great for children to grow up without prejudice.

Last year we didn't like some things the school was doing but we spoke to the people in charge and they fixed it so this year is better. The parents in this school are very supportive but I feel that the school (in general) only shows appreciation for the parents when they need help. Sometimes my children come home feeling burned out because they worked so hard at school.

It is such a happy place to be every single day. It's fun to go there even when I don't have to! All of the teachers and faculty are always upbeat, smiling, and interested in our children's lives. They work hard to give our kids the best experience possible and ensure that all of the students become happy, healthy, educated, good citizens. It is a happy, safe, warm place and I wouldn't want my kids anywhere else.

This school is the best school in the area! The principle herself is spending extra time helping my daughter with her math work. She is in 3rd grade and I was concerned because she has always struggled in this subject. I also have a daughter in Kindergarten who is loving school and doing very well! To the person who posted they were unhappy that they couldn't walk their kids to the class you have to remember the times we live in after all the school shootings around the country and the sniper up north, Springfield Park is very concerned and proactive about the safety of its students and staff.

If you have a child with special needs, be it ADHD, ADD, PDD-NOS and or Autism, good luck to you! The school will fight you in seeing to it that your child is out of the school and put in a special education classroom within the district. They *can* implement services, but drag their feet like you would not believe!! A child with ADHD does not need to go to another school-- all he/she needs is some extra services (small groups for math/reading + testing services, etc., etc.). Very disappointing experience!!!!!!

I have had children at SPES for eight years and I only have good things to say about it. The teachers and staff are all very caring and approachable. My children have been very happy and have excelled in their academics. We love it and would not go anywhere else. Go Springers!

I love the work my daughter's first grade teacher has done to help her adjust to full days at school and catch up with her class. (She has a late birthday.) Mrs. Bowers has been awesome to work with and really cares.

I have two children in this school. They are both in the 5th grade. My son was having dificulty in the first grade. The teacher and I discussed the problem and agreed that he should repeat the first grade. He has a great 7 years in this school. The school has alot of parent involvement. They have an after school program in the fall and spring with parents and teachers offering special class in such activities as First Aid, Fitness, Fun and Games, Theatre Arts, Crocheting, Beginning Chess, and Great Ideas Come From Great Books. This is all done throught the volunteering of the parents and teachers.(Springfield Park Kids Club)
