Springhurst "Birds-eye View"

Say hello to NAO! He's small but he's got a big personality for a 22.8-inch robot! Better yet, he will aid students in learning computer programing, coding language, computational thinking and other STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) skills. NAO can speak French, do Tai Chi, imitate Darth Vader, walk, talk, run, laugh and even look sad. We're happy he's found a home in the School District. You can call him by his nickname... "Dobbs." Click on the video above.

Message From the Principal

Welcome, Families, to Springhurst Elementary School. 
Springhurst is a special place where young minds are inspired and challenged, and all students are enabled to experience success.  As a parent myself, I appreciate the significance of the early years of a child's life and how, for both parents and students, elementary school marks the beginning of a new and important chapter.  Rest assured that your children will flourish at Springhurst thanks to the superb and highly-qualified staff and to the bountiful resources and opportunities that await them.
Across the disciplines you will find rich programs to stimulate each child’s interests, and enthusiastic staff members that have dedicated themselves to providing a quality curriculum that is cutting edge.  Committed to teaching the whole child, we offer not only a strong academic foundation, but a rich social and emotional experience so that children receive a well-rounded education. We strive to inspire lifelong learners who also are conscientious citizens.  

Our work at Springhurst aligns with the vision of the Dobbs Ferry School District: Independent Thinkers Prepared to Change the World.  The mission of our District is to strive to develop independent, curious, and open-minded learners who think critically, work collaboratively, act ethically and are knowledgeable about the world around them.  At Springhurst we continue to embody and support the attainment of this mission and vision.
I hope you will be involved participants in our school community.  I look forward to partnering with you to help your children grow and excel throughout the year and for many years to come.
