    Our first year at Springwood has been a very positive and rewarding experience for my entire family. The faculty and staff at Springwood are devoted to providing an academic setting that is state of the art and I am confident that my child is receiving the best possible education. Springwood is committed to providing a powerful Christian based educational environment for its students and words cannot express my deep appreciation for the opportunity to be a part of that commitment.

    Springwood was my first choice when it came time to enroll my children in school. My husband however was not convinced it was the right decision. He had always attended public school and did not see the need to send them to a private school. After many hours of looking at the campus interviewing teachers the elementary director and the headmaster he was certain that Springwood was the place for our children. With a law enforcement and military background he was very concerned about their safety in school as well as the curriculum. He was very pleased with how Springwood School addressed both concerns. Both he and I have been very impressed with the curriculum as well as the constant communication and accessibility of the teachers and administration. We are also extremely excited about the new Headmaster Mr. Parsons. His positive energy genuine love for our children and Christian influence is exactly what we want for our children. We are so excited about the direction he is taking Springwood and cannot wait for what lies ahead!

    Well I am parent of 2 children who are currently attending this school. The academics are great but teachers have difficult time disciplining many students in my oldest child's class. There is constant bullying and confrontations among girls and boys especially physical altercations between girls and boys. Girls behave .... Overall I would rate the school on academics (4star) because it is 1 grade behind Georgia. When moved my son was learning elementary pre-algebra. I give 2 stars because of the constant bullying and lack of respect from the students toward other classmates. I give the teachers 5 stars for tolerating disrespectful students.

    I am a student of Springwood. I have gone there since kindergarten. Loved every year. We have gotten a new headmaster and our school spirit and campus has improved so much since school started back. My teachers are very educated and teach us well. We got 56 new students this year and we hope for much more next year. Lastly our technology program is excellent.

    We moved our family to the area from metro Atlanta in search of a better quality of life and a family oriented community. With education a top priority we were looking for a private school similar to what we experienced in Atlanta. Springwood has met and exceeded all our expectations...................and at a third of the cost!

    I have had three children attend Springwood and I have been very satisfied. The first two were boys and were well prepared to get into good and nationally recognized liberal arts college. The last child a girl is a senior and will also be able to attend a top liberal arts college. Students graduating from Springwood are able to write!! They have also been exposed to the latest computer technologies which they will be asked to use at college. The fine arts program is also especially good....a rarity for this geographic area.

    Springwood just introduced a pioneering and high-tech Tablet Computer program for every student in the high school. The kids love it and are excelling. We moved to Lanett from metro Atlanta several years ago. Some of the local residents that don't have a frame of reference think Springwood is too expensive but at around $6 000/child it is an extraordinary value for a college-prep academy. The campus is beautiful the amenities are incredible the teachers are outstanding and the education is unparalleled. Also the students are bright respectful and talented. Truly I couldn't find a better group of peers for my kids.

    My children have been attending Springwood for over 12 years and the education they have received and experiences they have had have been worth every penny spent on tuition. One has recently graduated and is currently enrolled in a four -year state university and feels very well prepared. My children have not only gotten a great education but have also been able to be involved in a lot of activities including varsity sports which they probably wouldn't have been involved in if they had attended public schools.

    Springwood has always been and continues to be an excellent private school offering strong academics and varied extracurricular activities. Many students participate in 3-4 activites and become excellent leaders as well as scholars. The technology program is the best in the area and the size of the school allows for exceptional personal attention.

    If you look into independent schools Springwood offers incredible price/value. It is blessed with an endowment that is able to keep the tuition artifically low. Schools of comparable quality and programming cost much much more! If you want a Christian environment with college-prep academics it really is a great option.

    My child received a very good education here but the tuition is outrageous and requests for money is ongoing. Discipline is great and students were always very respectful to me as an adult.

    i'm a student at springwood school...and honestly it run by a bunch of cheapskates...they have a very unreasonably high tuition and they still beg for donations from alumni and anyone else who will give them anything...o yea and we are no where near what you would call racially diverse...we have maybe 5 african-americans in a school of 400+...honestly you'll find much better public schools in auburn and opelika than in any of the private schools around here
