    "Just finished our first year at Spady, and it was better than I had hoped for. My son loved his teacher (Ms. Franko), and he feels like Spady is his home. I was impressed with the school culture, the academics, and the family involvement. Looking forward to another great year."

    "I can tell you as a parent & the PTA president of Spady our school is not always perfect but what school is? But ,what I do know for sure is our Spady community of teachers, staff and parents are that of a loving, caring & accepting community that I am honored to be a part of. We are all human beings & sometimes do not get things right but just like any parent or person we are striving to do our best each day. Here in SoFL where there are so many cultures & it is very diverse, it is nice to find a small community of people who truly care about each other & their school. We are blessed to have been at Spady since K and as we move on next year I can say being at Spady was where we were meant to be. Kimmy Cooper, Proud Parent of Spady"

    "Sigh. Thank you for looking into this school. It is a sign that you are a conscientious parent trying to figure out what the best scenario is for your child's education. I commend you on your efforts. BUT the best way to learn about a school is to VISIT it and get opinions from people you KNOW AND TRUST. Online reviews either come from people who are ecstatic about their choice or people who are bitter. You will most likely not get a balanced, fair review. Is Spady the epitome of Montessori? No. It is a public school that has to meet Statewide standards that are constantly in flux. Are all teachers at ANY school perfect? NO. Is there a school that exists that doesn't have children with social development issues, problems at home, learning disabilities? NO. No school...NO SCHOOL... is perfect, and no school is perfect for EVERY child. Best of luck to you in your search. For me, for now, I love Spady and so do my children."

    "When problems happen at Spady, we don't simply punish. Instead we see discipline as a skill to be learned and so we use conflict as a teachable moment with a problem-solving reflection. We discuss the situation with the students involved & focus on them understanding mistakes that were made & learning to make better choices in the future. We ask them to think about their part in a problem, to consider the other person's feelings, and to plan for different options for themselves if the problem occurs again. As Charles Swindoll said, "We cannot change our past... we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude... I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% how I react to it." I believe teachers & administration do a great job of teaching students resilience, focusing our kids on self-regulation & communication skills, encouraging positive interactions, and treating both children & adults with respect. I wish Great Schools would structure reviews so that feedback on BOTH a school's strengths & weaknesses would be provided."

    "Im actually a spady graduate (kindergarten-5th grade). I remember vividly being chased down and thrown to the ground during recess and getting sand thrown in my face. What is messed up about all of this is i remember seeing 3 teachers watching me get beat up. I remember vividly feeling racially discriminated against. The teachers who care are good. But the teachers assistant's are usually hoodrat garbage."
