    As a former student of Big Springs I must say where would I be without all the great staff there. I mean everyday was always such a great day to learn. The teachers were always happy to help me understand any concept I had trouble with and made my educational experience there nothing but pure joy. I highly recommend this school to any child with a learning disability your child isn't slow! He/she just has a different style of learning!!! AND as a little fun fact after graduating Big Springs I will be graduating Vista Murrieta High School on June 8th of 2011 with an accumulative academic GPA of a 3.79 and will soon be attending Cal Poly Technical school of Science and Engineering in the Fall 2011 Session. THANK YOU TO ALL THE BIG SPRINGS STAFF TEACHERS AND THERAPISTS!!!! YOU HAVE MADE A HUGE IMPACT ON MY LIFE AND I WILL NEVER FORGET YOU!!!!

    Big Springs Center & School was definately the answer to my child's learning style. The school district was unable to help my child due to inexperience and class sizes to prove beneficial. The staff at Big Springs Center & School truly care about the needs of a child. Thank You.

    This is my sons second year at BSS. Let me tell you when we started here he was in big trouble in the public setting the non-stop issues with trying to get service for him was ridiculous. We (my husband and I) have been completly satisfied and greatful to the staff at BSS. Our son now recieves every kind of therapy he needs OT which we fought tooth and nail to get at public schools vision therapy which didn't seem to exist in the public setting He also recieves social skills which is huge for our son. We are looking towards the future for our son and feel he is being prepped very well. Thanks to all BSS staff.

    so far i am pleased with my son development thus far. When he came to this school in 4th grade from Seneca Elementary where he had been placed in the special needs program from 2nd grade and still did not not know how to read the basic words and was having a very difficult time with even basic 1st grade material he did not even know the basic phonic. It seems he has a varies of issues that makes it very hard to learn. visual audio processing. but he has trived since he has come to this school. it was a god sent. i highly recommend it.

    Bigs Springs school provides many opportunites in a diverse setting. However at the highest level there is often the impression given that they are doing the families a favor. While their work with the students is favorable the overall attitude toward parents and students as a whole is lacking.
