Open Quote Don’t waste your time or your money. The place is fake. Filled with bullies and the academics are a joke. Close Quote

Open Quote Springside School is the best of the best. The staff and teachers feel like family! The parents are very involved in everything in the school. It is like a home away from home. The curriculum is state of the art 21st century and the teachers find very creative and innovative ways to keep up with our changing world. My daughter attended pre-k and kindergarten at Springside and we unfortunately relocated to a different state. I sure with I could have taken the school (and all staff and teachers) with me to our new state. I will forever compare every school to Springside. If our family ever moves back to Philadelphia, Springside is the only school my daughter will attend. 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.
