Did You Know That:
Springdale began as a one room school house in 1855.
In 1895 there was a girl’s entrance and a boy’s entrance.
A new school was built in 1904 (see below) and the original school was moved and became part of the second story of a house now standing on Weed Hill Avenue.
Children used to take the trolley up Hope Street to get to school.
In the 1800’s children used to play a game called “Kitty Over” at recess. One team would throw the ball over the building and if someone from the other side caught it before it bounced, he ran around and tried to tag someone to bring him back to his side. The game continued until no one was left on one side.


Springdale welcomes its diverse student population and implements a variety of experiences to reach out to our school community. Some of our more noteworthy events include Literacy Volunteers Program, Family Dinners, Family Fun and Learning Nights, Springdale Neighborhood Clean-Up, and the Spring Community Art Show which showcases the art work of students, parents, staff and community volunteers.

The school library and media center both house two "state of the art" networked technology labs and promethan active whiteboards. Classrooms are equipped with two or more computers.  Presently Internet access is available in all grade levels.
