Spectrum is very organized and has proven themselves in strength within the principal and teachers - whos interests lie with children's education as priority. With government cut backs, unfortunatly schools have closed bringing spectrums attendance up and therefore raising class sizes; not their fault. ...  Read more

We have a 2nd and 3rd grader at Spectrum. They like it. The teachers are great and excited and enthusiastic. Principal is fantastic. Wonderful experience from coming from Virginia to Arizona.

2011, this school is in need of a reality check by Arizona State ASAP! My kid, who is in Kindergarten, has already been sent home with 3 notes from the teacher and a visit to the principal s office within the first week of school.

My son attended Ms. Dyas class from Oct 09 to April 10 then we had to move to FL. To this day he still talks about Ms. Donna's class and how much he truly misses her.

I'm a parent and proud of our excelling school. The last 2 reviews are real distortions. Yes, it's hot in Arizona and the wait time is not 20 minutes. The process is very organized and our kids are safe. No problems with leadership or teachers.

This used to be one of the best schools in Gilbert but the principal has brought it way down over the past year. If you plan on picking up your children be prepared to stand in the desert heat for at least 20 minutes and by car is even worse. I can only hope with a leadership change that this school ...  Read more
