From the Superintendent

Greetings! Thank you for visiting our website to learn more about Spring Valley School District.  

Over the years, our student body has grown dramatically, yet we have maintained our commitment to small classes and individual attention.

At Spring Valley we place a premium on the concept of balance in promoting the health and well-being of our students.  The Executive Director of the National Association of Independent Schools Pat Bassett cites research pointing to two main characteristics shared by the best schools: exceptional teachers and appropriate moral climates.

Ours is a uniquely warm and supportive school community, and we know this enhances every student's learning experience.

Please, take the time to come and see for yourself. We look forward to welcoming you.

Clarissa Ellison, Superintendent

  • Winter Food Drive

    The Spring Valley Food Bank needs help!  We are joining together as a community to help fight hunger by running a food drive to collect nonperishable foods. We ask that you send in one nonperishable food item with your child to their school next Tuesday.  A district truck will pick up all of the contributions and deliver them to soup kitchens, food pantries and other community food programs across the city.

  • Volunteers Needed!

    SVSD is looking for some helping hands. Everyday we are lucky to have a team of volunteers working in classes, at school buildings, and with our district team to give us the man power to deliver the best instruction to our students in the healthiest environment. Will you be part of our team? Becoming a volunteer is easy - submit a background check form, wait for approval and then contact your school or the district office for a job. Whether you're interested in helping once or every week, we have something for you.  Thank you!
