Clear Springs Elementary School Reviews

I transferred to Clear Springs when I was going into the second grade from a different school district. This school is amazing! The principle, Curt Carpenter, gave me and my family our own tour and also knew every single students name in the whole school! He would stand in the hallways before and after school and just greet students! He even knew my older brothers name (who ended up not going to the school). Overall, me and my family had a very positive experience at Clear Springs. The teachers are amazing and there are many activities outside of school to get involved in!

Clear Springs has excellent teachers, staff, and programs (with the exception of the front desk ladies). The principal is amazing and there are always people willing to go out of their way to help. With that being said, ethnic and economic diversity is severely lacking and for me personally, that affects education tremendously. If a student doesn't "fit in" appearance wise and money wise, the child will struggle socially. Parents are always silently competing who volunteers the most while looking the best and having the most friends and gossip. Not an environment I am happy my son is in. Will be switching to a more diverse school after 4 years.
Amazing staff. My kids have had a fantastic elementary experience at Clear Springs!! The teachers do an amazing job balancing academics with fun ‘extras’ like the duck parade, track and field day, world culture week, etc. Love our school!!
