Crystal Spring Elementary School3

Nice neighborhood school with a neighborhood feel but the quality of education is questionable for the middle of the pack students. Top students and bottom students get attention (though not pushed to learn even more), but because of the large class size students in the middle of the pack are not getting the basics to advance and there are challenges awaiting those who miss basic concepts and foundation work. Though it feels like a private school, it is not.
Administration and Teachers are second to none! Parental involvement really helps make this a top notch public school. The atmosphere is one of fostering education including holding the children accountable and the parents responsible for educational goals.
High parent involvement. Many parents attended the school themselves and consider Crystal Spring to be the 'private' public school. Most teachers excellent. Lovely, small town atmosphere. No spanish program offered. The administration seems to cater to the prominent families in this area.
