Open Quote I am beyond happy to have my daughter attending Spring Garden Elementary. Not only do they put the time and work in to give our children a proper education, they 100 care about our children’s wellbeing. No students left behind is a motto they live and stand by. This is my daughters first year attending. She is in Kindergarten. Mrs Groft is her teacher. I have so many great things to say about her. She has amazing skills she practices to teach the children. She’s kind and patient. When she talks about her students you can tell she doesn’t just teach for a paycheck, she teaches because she cares about our children and has compassion. All of the teachers at Spring Garden are exactly what I look for in a teacher. I’m very grateful for each and every one of them. It’s comforting to know my daughter is in good caring hands at Spring Garden Elementary. All schools should mirror their amazing qualities! Close Quote

Open Quote The school administration is incompetent. The principal turns a blind eye to serious matters that need to be addressed. A lot of teacher/student bullying goes on. It's a sad shame. A lot of the teachers are not there for the students ......just a paycheck. I wouldn't send my dogs there. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
