    This school does a lot with the kids and is great for our community. We have been with this school for almost 2 years.

    Seminole Springs staff goes above and beyond to make the children and parents feel special! I have been very pleased with the teachers admin. Staff nurse on duty and other staff such as physical. Ed librarian etc. Coming from Seminole county I wish the education was more challenging (but Lake County is not alone in teaching to the masses capabilities instead of demanding more from all students). I have been pleased with the security procedures as well. It makes the parents and staff feel safer. The only other thing I could suggest is more involvement by parents in supporting kids (as a volunteer teacher's aide more teacher appreciation activities .. ..ex. bring in treats for staff etc.) Overall I have to say that after being in several Lake County schools this one is THE BEST I've been in so far...

    Seminole Springs has been an A+ school for the last ten years! The faculty and staff are great and very accomodating. They encourage parental involvement in all activities. They provide enriching community events such as Media Night every monday.

    We recently moved to the outskirts of Eustis and are thrilled that our children attend Seminole Springs Elementary. The teachers and administration have high standards of their students. My child recently was awarded the Student of the Month and we are thrilled that the school has incentive programs such as this.

    'My Nieces and nephews have been in this school for most of their young education. Recently they were all moved to another school. Sadly this was due to Unfriendliness from staff teachers and the principal. Due to the nature of their treatment I would never recommend anyone to this school and as a mother of two young children I know that at least mine will not be attending there.'

    My two children have attended a total of three elementary schools and Seminole Springs is by far the best. Great teachers clean and safe and excellent academic programs for a public school.

    This is a wonderful school! You couldn't pay for a better one. This school has had a well deserved 'a' rating for the 7 years I have had children there. The staff epsecially the pricipals really love and care about the children. They also love parent involvement which seems to be hard to find these days. Any child would be privilage to attend this school.
