School Summary

Spring Hill Elementary School is dedicated to its educational partnership with the community it serves. Parents and staff members share a common commitment to help students develop and grow socially, emotionally, physically, and academically. An incredibly important component of Spring Hill's success lies with our parent and community volunteers. Our community pledges thousands of hours each year supporting the goals of our school.  Staff members nurture each child's sense of self-worth with high expectations and realistic standards of achievement. Spring Hill was awarded the prestigious Governor's Award for Academic Excellence in 2011 and has received the Virginia Board of Education Award every year since. Spring Hill is fully accredited by the VA Department of Education based on our consistantly high Standards of Learning (SOL) scores over the last several years.

Spring Hill Elementary School is dedicated to the notion that every child's journey as a lifelong learner is varied and at times must be nurtured individually. Teachers work collaboratively in collaborative learning teams (CLTs) to ensure that every individual child reaches his or her full academic potential. Some of the techniques used to reach this goal are differentiated instruction, flexible mathematics groupings, guided reading approaches, and an emphasis on creative problem solving, critical thinking, and written expression. Student technology skills are mastered via an integrated approach throughout the various subject areas. As a result of the school's academic excellence and rigor, FCPS division-wide assessments and Virginia Standards of Learning (SOL) competency test benchmarks are consistently surpassed at the highest levels of competency.

Spring Hill's staff members are dedicated learners themselves, actively participating in local, state, and national conferences and professional development programs, participating in on-site technology training and other in-services to stay on the cutting edge of educational and instructional research. As a result, we provide an enriched program that meets the diverse needs of our students. 

Though Spring Hill continues to focus on exemplary academic achievement, we are simultaneously recognized for our character education program as participants in the "Positivity Project" where students engage in daily discussions and activities based around 24 positivity traits and development of an "Other People Matter" mindset.  

The true spirit of Spring Hill can be seen through its numerous service projects, including food drives for local shelters, performances at a neighboring assisted living facility, fundraisers, and positive stewardship of our planet's resources. As a National Wildlife Federation Silver Award Eco-School, Spring Hill has been recognized as one of the most environmentally conscious schools in Northern Virginia with a dedicated "litter brigade," on-campus designated wildlife habitats, and a comprehensive recycling program.
