Meaningful Instruction + Teamwork = Student Success
Springfield Elementary School (SES) is recognized as a Title I Distinguished School. The caring, dedicated staff members focus on providing meaningful instruction for every child, every day. A well-developed curriculum and instructional plan is the foundation of the successful academic program. Staff members have high expectations for all students. The instructional plan is data driven and allows for differentiation for all students.
Springfield Elementary provides an accelerated Gifted & Talented (GT) program in 1st – 5th grades. Students are served by the GT certified classroom teacher as well as a resourced GT teacher. SES also provides an Early Intervention Program (EIP) for Kindergarten – 5th grade students. In addition, three Reading Recovery teachers provide one-on-one reading instruction for qualifying first grade students. The Reading Recovery teachers also assist with small group instruction in first and second grades. In addition to early intervention resources, SES provides quality special education programs for students qualifying for additional services. SES also receives services from an intervention team that provides one-on-one tutoring for qualifying students. SES is dedicated to ensuring that all students make academic gains throughout the school year.
In addition to quality instruction, SES provides advanced technology classrooms. The students also benefit from a computer lab and chromebooks for students in each classroom.

The students participate in Math Challenges, the SES Spelling BEE, and many Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO) sponsored events.
