    "This school is terrible. The teachers and have extreme trouble controlling their classes. Some teachers had to call in the Principal or Assistant Principal in order to keep the class from exploding. Even then, the children still managed to revolt. Although that probably was the right decision. To revolt, that is. The teachers always seemed to have the wrong idea, and didn't compromise with the students at all. Sometimes, in order to remain correct, the teachers would contradict themselves. The computers, although not terrible, are outdated. As well, the Tech Facilitator was cut when they spent her part of the budget on buying iPads for the younger, irresponsible students. Then, several intelligent students discovered a flaw in the school's security system. Even though they brought it up on several occasions with the replacement facilitator, the school took no action to correct the flaws. The end result were tutorials circulating around that detailed how to use the flaw to hack the school. The flaw in the security system ended with every student being able to change each other's grades and other things. This school is broken, and you should not send your children to this school."

    "Springman Middle School is not a very good school for various reasons. First, it does not meet many expectations of a school that may be considered 'good'. No matter how many times a teacher might threaten a student for a detention, they never seem to actually give them, which causes the students to do whatever they're doing to cause this problem. Either that, or they might give detentions too easily. I will not name any teachers or students, although my student got a detention for talking in class. I mean, yes, that is disruptive, but my student did not get any sort of warning or chance to switch their behavior. Second, the lunch can give you food poisoning. The ladies who work in the cafeteria don't care about what we're consuming at all. They'll just plop some fake meat on chips and call it everyone's favorite lunch when in reality, most people would rather not eat the food at all just so they wouldn't be forced to eat something like that. If you forget your ID you have to wait in a separate line and wait until everyone else gets their lunch just to find out that the food you're looking forward to is gone. I don't recommend this school at all and if you get the chance, go Attea!"

    "I just left 8th grade at Springman Middle School and I can honestly say that I loved it. The teachers particularly on the Discovery and Explorer team are honestly there to help you. The former assistant principle is there to help you and guide you through anything. The teachers and staff overall at Springman are incredible. They listen to everyone and will help you with anything. They work around you and you're schedule just to make sure you will succeed. At the end of my three years at Springman everyone had become a family. I'm truly going to miss that. I do feel well prepared for high school and am super excited! The teachers also make sure to keep in touch with parents, they respond to emails quickly because they want us to succeed more than anything else. Overall my school experience here was the best couldn't have asked for anything better/"

    "The school doesn't deserve this high rating. I do agree with the previous review...its all about tests and looking good.On the behavioral level, I don't see them "dealing" with problems, instead they want to "get rid" of the problems. Again, its all about looking good.They make a big deal of certain things, not paying attention to what their job is: academic education. I also think its time to change the principal?? Change is good. The social workers need to step back as well. I think they overstep their boundries. Some were just rude. On occasion (and have had more than one child in that school--glad its over) it felt like I was talked down to by office staff and administration. Most teachers are great though. Open to communication but some are too laid back, as one parent said...kids get too many breaks. Were they ready for high school after Springman? NO!! The reality hit them hard when they entered high school. The gap is way too big between Springman and GBS. I question their fairness when dealing with certain situations and that's with teachers and administration. On the surface everything seems nice, things change when problems come up. Hey, but Nurse rocks!"
