I love Springhill because both my children and now their children are attending. There is so much support from parents and teachers, that the kids love attending.

The Principal, Mrs. Bailey, is wonderful and the teachers are outstanding. My daughter has been there from Kindergarten through the 3rd grade and she has loved every teacher she has had. They truly care about the students and I couldn't be happier with the school.

Spring hill has had a lingering 'poor' reputation in the school which is simply untrue. I did a lot of research before I pulled my daughter out of a private institution and put her in Springhill and it is by far one of the best local elementary schools. When you look at test scores you must take into account how many students there are that attend that school as compared to the others. The principal, Pamela Bailey, is adored by the children even though she runs a very tight ship. They are ever cautious about the safety of the children and discipline. I believe Mrs. Bailey knows each of the children by name. The even have a TAG program for children who excel. Please investigate for yourself when you are looking at local schools, you may find that the people who actually have students there love the school!
