Springer Public Schools
Springer Public Schools has a population of approximately 250 students Pre-K through 12th grade. We are a district that embraces the ideals and practices of High Achieving Schools. We understand that our unique situation and small size contribute to both our successes and our challenges. Our plan is to adapt to the challenges and celebrate the successes.
The strengths of our district include shared values, shared leadership, personalized instruction, and high expectations. Administrators have the luxury of being in daily contact with all staff and all students throughout the district. There is a supportive and encouraging environment in the classroom and on the campus.
It is our desire to provide a unique and individualized learning environment that aligns to our students needs. The goal of improved literacy is crucial to the success of every school, but we strive to provide additional opportunities for our students as well. One goal is to implement hands on and project based learning opportunities for the teaching of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM). Another goal is to encourage Academic and Robotic teams. We boast a strong Agricultural Education program as well as an accomplished Vocal Music program. Our athletics teams continue to grow and produce athletes that continue in the collegiate setting.
Springer provides a small school environment with big aspirations.
Springer Middle School and High School
We are “Achieving Excellence Together” at Springer Middle and High School!! Springer is a very conservative school with strong discipline and high expectations enabling teachers to teach and students to learn. Students are empowered at Springer as they are able to attend school without the fear of other’s behaviors. It is the expectation that students respect themselves, adults, and their peers as they work toward becoming productive citizens. Springer averages approximately 16 students in each grade which allows a very personalized educational experience for each student and parent. Our teachers and staff are exceptional and they strive each day to help each student succeed. As the current extra-curricular programs continue to thrive, we continually look for opportunities to add new programs. Springer is a very proud small school which can boast the success of its Fine Arts Programs sustaining exceptional programs in Art and Vocal Music. Both programs utilize exceptionally new facilities which promote excellence. In addition to our fine arts programs, our Vocational Agriculture Program functions at a very high level and benefits from the use of a new Agriculture Facility with shop and computer lab. Our school has very strong community support for all educational efforts. Our community, students, parents, and staff are excited about our school’s positive direction and commitment to excellence!
Springer Elementary School
Springer Elementary is located along the I-35 corridor about halfway between Dallas and Oklahoma City. We are about 8 miles North of Ardmore, Oklahoma at the foot of the Arbuckle Mountains. We are a rural community with a population of about 700 and a school enrollment of approximately 250 students. Springer obtains most of its revenue from the Ardmore Airpark and the industry it provides.
Academic excellence is our top priority. We are very proud of our school and its accomplishments. Springer Elementary was named a Progressive Great Expectations School, and is working toward Model School Status through the Great Expectations Foundation. This year our school worked very closely with the K-20 Center from the University of Oklahoma to provide students with STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) lessons for our students to provide them with an education that prepares them for the 21st Century. Each classroom is equipped with a smart board, computers, and iPads which bring modern technology into the hands of students.
Pre-K through 6th grade is contained in our elementary building. We have one class per grade level and we provide students with individualized instruction. Springer Elementary is committed to providing a caring, positive, and safe learning environment where each child is encouraged to make responsible choices and develop the academic skills necessary to reach their maximum learning potential.
