It is an honor to be the principal at Mountain Springs Elementary.  We recently celebrated our 10th year as a Mountain Springs Elementary School Family! We are looking forward to another great year with you and your children.  

We believe we have the best school district and we are proud to have you at Mountain Springs. We set high expectations and provide the support our students need to achieve in academics and life.

We want your children to be active, to be problem solvers, avid readers/writers, lifelong learners and great leaders in our society.
