Welcome to Springville Elementary!

Dr. Gailen Mitchell

The Springville School is home to 447 students in Grades K-4, and 80 staff members, each school day. Our goal is to develop knowledgeable, responsible, confident citizens with a love of learning to last a lifetime. We encourage our students to create, to take chances, to become active learners and to appreciate and enjoy their learning opportunities. Building strong character, civic responsibility and respect for diversity in our students is an also an ongoing goal. We hope our children realize they can make a difference.

At Springville, we stress character education, goal setting, creative spirit and student recognition. Springville's success lies in a deep commitment to building the total child. This success begins with the entire school community working together for the academic, social and personal growth of our students. We provide many opportunities for our students to perform community service as student ambassadors, buddies for lower grades, safety patrol and school-wide service projects.

Recognizing and responding to the developmental needs and varied learning styles of our students is essential. Each child at Springville is treated as an individual, with enrichment or remediation available whenever necessary. 

Your Input Is Crucial To Superintendent Search

Mount Laurel's Board of Education wants to hear from all Mount Laurel residents in its search for a new superintendent of schools. What do you feel are some of the challenges the district is likely to face over the next few years? What question would you ask candidates for the position if you were conducting the interview?
Your answers to five survey questions can help direct board members to consider those things the majority feels are most important in a new school leader. Can you find a few moments to participate?
Please follow this link to include your voice in the search process. Survey responses go directly to the New Jersey School Boards Association, which is facilitating the search process with the board. Details and progress updates on the status of the search may be found on our Superintendent Search page.

Interim Superintendent
