Our Story Of Learning

The story of Springfield Plains began in the fall of 1994 when we first opened our doors to students under the leadership of Dr. Sharon Devereaux. Just six years later Springfield Plains was nationally recognized as a National Blue Ribbon Award School. Each child begins to write their story of learning the moment they step through the doorways at Springfield Plains. Under the thoughtful guidance of teachers and through positive partnerships with families each child’s story unfolds. Relationships are important at Springfield Plains, and most importantly, children are loved here. We believe in fostering an environment where everyone is valued and trusted. Our mission is simple: Love. Learn. Lead.

A Memorable Meeting and Story to Share

Jagger Woody is one of those people you meet, and instantly know you won't forget.The first thing I noticed about Woody was his confidence. Strolling the grounds with a hammer swinging from the toolbelt at his side, he spoke directly and knowledgeably about the projects that clearly brought him great pride. He has also found a connection and a purpose in coming to school.
