    We need more parents to participate. I know it is hard for working parents. You would be amazed the little things that you can do to make a difference.

    This is a great school. My daughter has been going there for 3 years and we couldnt' say enough good things about this school. We love the teachers and staff and also the former and current principal. My daughter has some special needs and is mainstreamed in a regular classroom. She has been truly lucky to have the best teacher in the world who deeply cares about her wellbeing and overall progress. She has gained so much in the past two years that she is actually a different kid -- more expressive and more confident. We have been to four different schools in Folsom since her preK year and in our opinion Blanche Sprentz is the best among all four.

    I have two children going to Blanche now and a third that will be starting in the fall. All of the teachers here we have met are very caring about the kids they teach. The principal sadly retiring this year is a good leader. The kids have met the new one and he has charmed them all. The staff is wonderful. I once bumped into the Admin. Assistant at Costco who gave me an update on something that happened to my son earlier that day! The best thing I like about Blanche is that it lacks the smug attitude from parents which is prevalent in so many other Folsom elementary schools. Unfortunately the GATE program here like other Folsom schools means nearly nothing.

    I have 4 children who have attended this elementary school with two of them still enrolled. Great Schools may rate this a 7 based on their criteria but for me it's a slam dunk 10. My kids have thouroughly enjoyed their experience at Blanche Sprentz. There are a number of teachers that I will always be thankful to for their role in my childrens development not only as students but also as good caring responsible kids as well. The family atmosphere that my child receives at Blanche Sprents is not quantifiable and thus is not reflected in the 7 rating that it has been given. Don't let the rating fool you this school is a gem. I personally have turned down numerous promotion opportunities at work because this is where I want to raise my kids and this is the school that I want them to attend. Kevin Totushek

    My son has just started his thrid year here at Blanche Sprintz. We are very happy with this school. It is small and the teachers and staff are all great so far. He had an amazing 1st grade teacher and I am sure his 2nd grade teacher is just as great. The enviroment here is loving and encouraging the parents are envolved. There is a feeling of community here. The campus is older and well kept. I like it because trees are huge and shady and it backs up to a city park. We are looking to buy a new home and it makes us sad to think we might have to leave Blanche Sprintz.

    This school is like family. The parents are very involved and I have not met a teacher that I did not like. Every one seems to get along very well. I like the principals perspective on bullying it is not tolerated at all!
