Poison Spider school is an amazing place for learning! This year, my fourth grader went from a first grade reading level to a fifth grade reading level during the first 3 months of the school year. What great teachers.

I thank God for poison Spider School. They have really helped in the transition of moving to a new city and our kids not knowing anyone. Thank you to the principle and her staff.

My son loves school. He is learning to read write in his kindergarden class. I love the community involvement. Poison Spider is a great little school with high standards and caring staff.
