School Summary

North Springfield Elementary School, provides an instructional program that ensures academic achievement in a learning environment that fosters social and moral development. The school builds a sense of community that supports parent and child involvement and a celebration of learning.

Mission Statement

At North Springfield Elementary School we strive to develop and inspire a caring and responsible community of learners by supporting all students socially, intellectually and emotionally.

Schoolwide priorities emphasize student achievement in language arts and mathematics and develop valued character qualities. Reading programs focus on a balanced literacy approach integrating reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Five areas of reading development are stressed including phonemic awareness, phonics, fluency, vocabulary, and comprehension. The writing program is integrated into all content areas to support comprehension in addition to a composition/expression focus that stresses the writing process of brainstorming, drafting, writing, revising, and editing. A variety of writing traits are emphasized to align with district and state guidelines. Technology is woven into instruction at all instructional levels as a vital learning tool and a means to access and analyze information.

The development of valued character qualities is an underpinning of all learning. Students are valued contributors to our school community that challenges individual potential, nurtures moral values, and develops the social skills necessary for future success. This commitment is visible in the achievements of students, the climate of warmth and caring throughout the school, and the impressive quality of student performance in music, art, and physical education.

An active PTA coordinates a variety of school-wide activities throughout the school year. North Springfield Elementary has enjoyed a long and cherished tradition of family involvement and parent support. The school continues to maintain a special place in the hearts of North Springfield community members.
