Mission Statement:
With consistency and structured, rigorous and engaging learning environments, we believe all students can learn; we believe family and community support is critical; we respect the diversity of our families and community; we, as a team at Spring Creek, strive to create a welcoming and respectful learning environment.

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 language arts, mathematics, science and 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 lifelong learners who are confident, curious, and compassionate members of society.
