    Our School has been one of the highest performing schools in the region for a couple of years running. Our band is a yearly contender for the State Title with a state championship in our recent past. Students who participate in our science club have been to national competitions in Envirothon and SeaPerch. Our 2014 team placed 3rd overall in Hattiesburg Miss! My kids really enjoy working with the staff. This school has nothing but a good future.

    I don't belive in this school they don't care about the children nor do they do anything to stop bulling. someone needs to step in and take control and remember school is about education not sports and rich kids.

    I think the parent reviews demonstrate the true problem with the Springs Valley School system....the parents of the students. It evident that a school will have problems when it resides in a county that is one of teh poorest and least educated in the state. I am sure it is hard to make students respect the education system when their parents do not respect it themselves. In addition these same parents that are so quick to find problems are the same parents that never show up to a parent teacher night never show up to help never pay their book fees and never have anything positive to say. What we really need is a www.greatparent.net web site to grade the true problem with schools...the PARENTS!

    My children have gone to Springs Valley for 8 years and I feel as if the school is not doing right by our children. The Elementary went without soap in bathrooms for over a month. The highschool principal once told me that he always takes a teachers side over a student. Nothing is ever done about parent complaints.

    The academic level of this school is absymal. Aside from that there is widespread lying and bullying which is not limited to students but goes all the way to the highest administration and is not addressed in any fashion. There is neither a safe environment here for the students nor is there one conducive to learning. Parents are afraid to complain for the most part because they know their children will be punished for it in school.
