    "meh, i was in this school a good while, and it wasn't a good experience. the teachers would rather yell at a student than teach them, and the lunch aids would yell at a student yelling "flubber nuggets" than actually "aiding" lunch. wow spg, thanks for teaching me a valuable lesson in life. and that is, not to say "flubber nugget" infront of a grown person."

    "I lovers Spring Glen!! I attended it from k until 6 and created so many wonderful memories! It is a great school with wonderful teachers who work hard to give children a good start in the future! I recommend it to families who want their kids to have a good education, make new friends and learn from wonderful teachers!!!"

    "Spring Glen has great teachers, principal, and a clean, new building and playground. The PTA is very involved (though constantly asking for parents to send in money via cash/check. There is a lot of pressure to contribute financially.) HOWEVER, my primary complaint is with the curriculum. The "new" math program is a joke. It is very lacking, and many parents complain about it, in fact I know of several parents who pay to send their kids on Saturdays to Eli Whitney for math enrichment so that their child will actually learn something! Additionally, in comparing the math, science, and spelling curriculum at Spring Glen to elementaries in Wallingford, Cheshire, North Haven, and even other elementaries in Hamden, Spring Glen appears to be teaching about 1 grade below level for each grade. K-3 has been all that my 2 children have experienced thus far, and in those grades the lack of computer lab time/skills is obvious, and the lack of penmanship (in K & 1st) and cursive instruction is discouraging. Improve the curriculum and add more FREE extracurriculars, and this school has the potential to be fantastic!"

    "Desperately needs a better curriculum to give our kids a stronger start! There is no challenge, no foreign language, no gifted program! Though Hamden as a whole is a less academic district, so maybe the poor curriculum at Spring Glen simply reflects that."

    "Our experience with Spring Glen has been mixed. The building and playground are clean, new, and welcoming. The principle seems very personable and completely committed to the school. The PTA is very strong, and there is a good sense of community there. The two things that brought my rating down were the secretary (difficult to work with and not at all welcoming or friendly), and I have been disappointed with the teacher. It feels like she's been using the same material for 30 years. My child is advanced and hasn't gotten any kind of environment to continue to develop that. And for the first 3 months, the only reports of school that I heard back were about the teacher yelling, the playground helpers yelling, and the lunch monitors yelling. My child felt scared in an environment I was hoping would be safe for her. It seems to be a school of incredible potential, and I really think it is heading in a fabulous direction. I have high hopes for the future."
