Mission Statement:
We strive to develop the social, emotional, and cultural aspects of the whole child while celebrating academic success and providing many opportunities for a comprehensive education for all students. We believe this will happen in an atmosphere where respect and acceptance of individual diversity is fostered. It is our goal that students from Spring Creek Elementary will be prepared for middle school and prepared to be positive, contributing citizens.

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.

School Highlights:

  • A comprehensive academic, social and emotional program supports the growth and development of the whole child, including PE, music and counseling.
  • Spring Creek is an AVID (Advancement Via Individual Determination) school with an emphasis on growing reading, writing, critical thinking, teamwork and organizational skills with the goal of preparing students for college and career success.
  • One-to-one iPad technology for each student and interactive SMART boards increase focus on the use of technology to enhance learning.
  • Strong community partnerships provide additional learning opportunities and experiences for students, including Lane Arts Council, City of Eugene, YMCA, Young Rembrandts, Lane ESD Deaf and Hard of Hearing program with after-school American Sign Language Club, PAWS Reading Program and Looking Glass.
  • Annual art show showcases our students’ efforts, creativity and accomplishments; this community event brings generations of Spring Creek families back to our school.
  • Schoolwide Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports creates a safe, respectful, responsible and inclusive environment that enhances academic and social behavior.
  • Onsite after-school care offered by YMCA
