Springville High has great staff and amazing counselors for my kid. There are great clubs for participating in and it is a safe environment.

As an alumnus of SHS who has gone on to college, I can say that I was not challenged academically as I would have liked to have been. SHS provided great ways for me to get involved and make friends, however I seemed to breeze through without being thoroughly challenged.

About the tests


In 2011-2012 Alabama used the Alabama Reading and Mathematics Test (ARMT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math. The ARMT is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alabama. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
