Many of the teachers have been at Crystal Springs close to their entire careers - once they work at our school they don't want to leave. The families and the teachers are wonderful and almost everyone attends the PTA events & parties. My children are thriving at Crystal Springs and love going to school. I would highly recommend Crystal Springs.
We tried hard to like this school. Between the staff, the trashy parents, and the principal we were sorely disappointed. Our child was consistently given teaching staff with little or no interest in actually educating children, and most seemed well past the burnout stage. With one parent as an educator we were astounded at how poorly the school is supplied and equipped, how low the academic requirements are, how many parents seem more interested in themselves than their child, and how the staff required lots of goodies and recognition for a performance that was mediocre at best. This school is strongly indicative of what is wrong with the American education system in general and Washington State in particular.
this is a wonderful example of a great community school. The teachers are so committed to our childre, many have taught all of their career at Crystal Springs! Test scores continue to improve even as the diversity of the school grows.
The staff at the school was amazing when we transfered from a differant school mid-year. They were accommadating and helpful. I am so glad we decided to move! My son loves his teacher and I have seen him grow leaps and bounds academically in the 3 short months he has been there. We are very impressed and extremely happy!
The before and after care is amazing and her teacher is great! this is her first year of school but we love it!
Crystal Springs is an awesome community of teachers & faculty, students and parents. The PTA is active and positive with lots of fun events like a Back to School BBQ, Bingo, Talent Show and Ice Cream Social. Parental involvement could be higher, but the principal and staff are very supportive of the PTA.
