    We are new to this school and are so so impressed. We have a high achieving third grader and a kindergarten student. The school is well organized and the teachers and staff are wonderful - I've volunteered in the school and been able to witness their response to all types of students and in each instance the staff have been professional kind and engaged with the kids. Even though it is a 400+ child school the school feels like a close-knit community. Our 3rd grader is challenged at an appropriate level - her AR level actually went down coming to this school because they demand mastery not just recitation. This is true across all her subjects - standards are very high and differentiated for each student. Our K student is in the most warm and vibrant classroom and is learning so much - we're thrilled with this school and can't say enough great things about it. It's proof that a bunch of regular kids can learn amazing things when placed in the right environment. We're so proud to be a Springville family!

    I feel I have made a mistake moving my children to this district that is so large. They may have high test scores but feel they care more about the ratings than caring about the children and the parents. I do commend the PTO they do a great job. Since coming to this district I feel that no one has time to talk about your child. I feel communication is lacking between staff and parents. In my last district the principal was out everday to meet the parents and students all year I have never seen the principal at Springville. I would love to see my child embrace this school as he has done others but unfortunately he hates school for the first time because he feels he doesn't matter.

    What makes Springville standout from being just another excellent Mount Laurel school - is that it's not excellent just for typical students and high achieving students.Springville is excellent with students with special needs. My child has special needs and they were sensitive to her issues. All the staff members I've encountered were understanding and appeared to really care. I wasn't impressed with the districts child study team but once you get past their BS; the people who work directly with our kids are mostly dedicated caring helpful people. I never met the principal so I can't comment on that. My child has attended other ML schools but I'm please that we are returning to Springville next year.

    Great Schools should get that 5 star rating posted up there. This school should be rated an 11 in my opinion. When we moved here I was very reluctant about the school since our son had previously attended a school with a rating of 9 (Springville's was 8 when we moved here last summer). But now I see how completely amazing this school really is. And apparently since the rating has gone up to a 9 now so does Great Schools. The staff is highly trained and very caring. Springville truly is a Great School!.

    not surprising a staff member rated this school w/high marks. I will commend the PTO and parents who are active participants in this school. however I find the staff not to be so supportive to the parents who give so much of their time to the overall success of the school.
