13 Parent Reviews for Mount Spurr Elementary School

We love Mt. Spurr! Mrs. Stallman is a phenomenal 1st grade teacher! We are hoping my younger child gets her this year. She emailed parents every day to keep us in the loop of things the kids were working on and reminders of events/activities. We loved Mrs. Bragg as well. She was fair, patient, and really ...  Read more

My wife and I are very happy with Mt Spurr. My son was in Ms Stallman's 1st grade class last year. I was really impressed with her energy and creativity. My son is now reading at an advanced level and I attribute that to Ms Stallman's teaching ability. The staff is all very friendly and professional. ...  Read more

My 4 boys attended Mt Spurr from 2010-2014. It is an excellent school that encourages individuality, challenges it's students and has a welcoming environment.

Wonderful School. Great class sizes. Teachers are actively involved in helping children learn. Principal will sit down with me, a parent, and discuss issues. Not impressed with school lunches, but that Anchorage District, not the individual school. The only problem with this is school is the PTA.

Mt. Spurr is a school with some good teachers but overall has poor academic standards. I had kids at Mt. Spurr in 2nd and 4th Grade who were more or less repeating the same material from the previous year in thier former school. If you put your kids in this school be prepared to supplement them or ...  Read more

Great School! My child is in Kindergarten here and thinks the world of Mrs. Bragg. Have always had a wonderful line of communication between school and parents.

I list the negatives for this school as the building, few regular afterschool multi-grade activities, limited resources, mixed grades in individual classes in upper grade levels, could be more challenging for some kids, and lack of a foreign language. The school looks nicer on the inside than the outside. ...  Read more
