    Great atmosphere and such support. I'm noticing a great sense of team work with parents and staff and hope it will continue for a long time! Sparty community support is unbelievable and truly a blessing for the children.

    We love this school. I couldn't be happier that we live here and are able to send our children to such a wonderful place. The teachers are incredible! My son is only in the first grade and almost every member of the staff knows him by name. I know with that kind of attention the students here are not going to 'fall through the cracks'. I feel great sending him to school every morning because I know he's in good hands. It's not just a school it's an extended family.
