Education is a Work of HEART!

Springhill Elementary School is located 25 miles south of Little Rock, AR. We are part of Bryant Public Schools, and we are proud to be both Springhill Eagles and Bryant Hornets! At SPES, we have created a culture and a climate where student leadership is celebrated and where students take ownership of their own academic and behavioral success.As a Leader in Me Lighthouse School, we accomplish our leadership goals by practicing the Seven Habits of Highly Effective People. We are firmly invested in this process, and for us, it all started a few years ago with a few simple shifts in our thinking. Where we once believed leadership was for the few and that only a few were gifted, we now believe that everyone can lead and that everyone has gifts.

Where we once focused heavily on academics, we now focus on the whole child. Where we once taught academic content, we now do so while empowering our students to take responsibility for their own learning. Also important to our academic and behavioral success is our focus on our Professional Learning Communities. No one at SPES exists in a vacuum! Rather, we meet together, learn from and share ideas with each other, study assessment data together, and discuss the individual needs of students. We no longer shut our doors and do our own thing! Instead, we invest in each other's growth because, in the end, we know it benefits all students.
