Program Description:

At Spring Creek Elementary, students are engaged in meaningful learning experiences every day that are enhanced by relationships with caring adults. We offer a robust instructional program where we integrate technology into the core academic subjects of English language arts, mathematics, science and the fine arts. Serious about our students’ academic growth, we also believe that school must be a place of joy and celebration where students have a real sense of belonging and possibility. Spring Creek is committed to cultivating critical thinkers who have the 21st Century Skills necessary to become life-long learners who are confident, curious, and compassionate members of society.
