SPASD is a great school district with phenomenal teachers, environment, scholastic and extracurricular activities. The music program is among the best in the nation, the drama club wins multiple awards every year, and one of the music teachers was a national finalist for Teacher of the Year. Most AP courses are offered with knowledgeable instructors who have experience, and multiple foreign languages are available at various levels, up to and including AP.
The teachers are great an really care a lot about the kids. But the school communication is poor - confusing and lots of errors. Also, the district at the elementary schools is way too focused on test scores. They should spend more time helping the kids learn to be good people, respect each other, play and grow their imagination. When they someday work, employers will want creative, innovative ideas. Without unstructured play, the kids will never have the practice of thinking of new ideas.
