Springs Studio for Academic Excellence Reviews

I truly loved this school. The layout of the curriculum, half in class and half online, allowed me to do school whenever I could and allowed me to begin working to save money for school. I also loved how passionate and caring all of the teachers were. It was their passion and love for teaching that helped to raise my GPA from 2.5 to 3.6 within a single school year! I will always look back on the fond memories that I had there!

Overall, this school is great. Most of the teachers really know what they're doing and care about helping you succeed. The high school math teachers are great people and care about their students. The art teacher is incredible and so, so encouraging, and usually doesn't care if you have a free period and want to sit in the art room for a while. Sadly, a lot of great teachers come and go at this school. Some of the years I've attended have been the absolute best because my teachers were just incredible. Other times, I would dread coming into the building for class since my teachers were miserable. In regards to the counsellors, they're part of the reason my review is only three stars. They never seem to really care about you as a person, they really only seem to care about doing their job to get paid. Interactions feel impersonal and robotic. Counselling may not be important to every student/parent when choosing a school, but I've found it to be pretty crucial.
the overall academic expectations are low. The school lacks basic organization: learning programs are changed frequently, staff changes, " off the beaten path" learning programs are chosen and staff training is poor resulting in " experimentation " rather than effective learning. School culture is non existent- no PTA, few school events that nobody shows up for, no reward system, low attendance on field trips. The school tolerates poor work ethic and instead of holding kids and parents responsible, work deadline are extended. Kids can work above grade level but there is little academic support. My child filled an entire notebook with written work and there wasn't a single correction. The teachers seem overwhelmed with the amount of work. Next school year yet another curriculum will be tested - there will be a new principal and office staff, in building schedule will be 3 days.
