We have one son currently at Clear Springs and another entering next fall. Our experience with Clear Springs teachers, staff, and with Curt Carpenter has been fantastic. We toured several school districts when we moved back to MN and are very thankful that we chose Clear Springs and Minnetonka.

Unless you are looking for a BIG elementary school, look elsewhere! The grade levels are big, the class sizes are big (and getting bigger), and the lines to pick up your kids are big (huge actually). I so wish that we had dug deeper and talked with parents (not administration) before picking Clear ...  Read more

The class size in 4th and 5th grades is higher than they claim on the district website. Classes are 28-33 in both English and Spanish and parents are not happy. My child is in 3rd grade and his class this year is 20 which is great! But next year in 4th grade they are combining the classes to make them ...  Read more

We toured several elementary schools and wondered how we would ever make a decision. Then we toured Clear Springs. The Principal is ...  Read more
