Spring Avenue School is a wonderful place. The teachers are top-notch and the school community is friendly and warm.
I am thoroughly disgusted with this schools compassion for families and students. The communication is beyond lacking and boarders on nonexistent. For being in a resource rich school district, they certainly do not use any of those said resources on their students. The teachers are collecting paychecks and checking boxes and do nothing but the bare minimum. I would not recommend this school.
