    "Thanks to the parent posting this on Jan 10. This explains why the teachers younger than 50 are totally demotivated, show no love/interest to the children and just go on their work like routine robots. Ms Debbie needs to review their pay. Also for teachers who show disinterest or no affection to the kids - You knew teacher didn't make a lot of $$, if you hate it now, switch careers. Stop torturing our children and yourselves."

    "You be the judge. I found this ad on 1/9/2014 at simplyhired.com "Substitute Teacher Are you interested in subbing throughout the Spring School, for ages preschool through Middle School? Beginning in March, a full time maternity leave placement will be available for the rest of the school year, as a co-teacher in a K-3rd grade math classroom.Until then, you could expect to be called on the morning that a teacher is sick, or perhaps in advance for a scheduled absence. The salary is $85.00 per school day.Montessori experience is desirable but not necessary. In the past, substitute teachers have often been hired full time the following year." WOW. so that's what we get for nearly $20k a year tuition?!There's nearly 1/2 a year left and we don't need an experienced montessori teacher educating our k-3 class?! Montessori not necessary?! Current ratio is 2 teachers to 35 students NOT the 3 teachers to 35 that WAS PROMISED and now we are down to 1 QUALIFIED MONTESSORI TEACHER for 35 kids!! As for the pre-k, the real ratio is 2 to 35 kids. Sure some kids leave for a brief time for "specials" (language,art,etc.)but that's only a short time.Real ratio doesn't meet state requirements. Shame!"

    "SPRING SCHOOL: Under the Outstanding Leadership of Director Knapp, Spring's Academic Program is Unparalleled and Unquestionably The Best in the area. As Type 'A' parents to twin boys, we over-did our research before enrolling our boys last year in their pre-k program. They are now in kindergarten reading books on their Own, drawing, painting & sculpting w/their Amazing Arts program, taking Gym Every day, Loving Math!, in to All kinds of Fun & Cool Science projects, bring Us new & Interesting History Facts about Music, Art, American, European + World Culture...Most Importantly, our twin boys have Tons of Friends and Fun doing it All and are Happy!!! We Can't Imagine any other school for our boys. Director Knapp integrates your Entire Family, not just the students, in to the school and works with you through Any of your Concerns. This core philosophy remains with the Teachers/Educators of Spring as well. They are not only Extremely Academic and Dedicated but very Personable & Friendly! We are Dedicated Spring 'Lifers' (till Grade 8) because of the Unsurpassed Quality of this school."

    "Spring School is a great school, i send my daughter there and she is loves it. Due to our personal family issue, i can't send her to the school anymore. all of the teachers are very caring loving people who cares about each students. my daughter has improved significantly in academically and socially as well... I recommend highly to anyone who is considering to send kids to this school... ms. debbie also is a wonderful person in my opinion who is reasonable and takes care of matters in a "humane" way; i was impressed with her character especially reading all the negative reviews on line... Spring School is an excellent school in my opinion....."

    "Dear Ms. Debbie. As you probably know, our daughter was admitted to the BCA. Please extend our gratitude to the Teacher s Staff for working with her during these last 6 years. Our kids education is a long journey, but it is a much more comfortable ride if during the first years kids can build a strong foundation supported by work ethics, good academics and the feeling that those who surround them care about them and their education. They want to help them understand a math problem, instill love for history, find new tools for research or just want to help them become better persons. Simply put: they care. We thank you all for being an invaluable partner in this journey for both our daugther and son during the most important years of their education."
