Time is running out to apply to the district’s new Spring Leadership Academy for the 2019-20 school year. The deadline is Friday, March 1, and parents are invited to complete an application online at www.springisd.org/leadership or over the phone at 281-891-6878.
The new school is opening as part of Spring ISD’s plan to strengthen its middle schools in response to feedback gathered from parents over the fall. The Spring Leadership Academy will offer middle schoolers leadership training in a blended learning environment that uses a mix of traditional and online instructional approaches.
The new middle school will be where the Spring Early College Academy is currently housed ion T.C. Jester. The Spring Early College Academy is moving this summer to the campus of Lone Star College-North Harris, freeing up the space for the new middle school, which will have capacity for 400 students.
“Our goal is to develop today’s young scholars into tomorrow’s servant leaders that are equipped with the skills and abilities to adapt and overcome on a global scale,” said Spring Leadership Academy Principal Dr. Kevin Banks. “Spring Leadership Academy will be a transformative force for Spring ISD middle school students,”
Banks has been hosting informational sessions across the district over the past few weeks to discuss the new school with prospective families and answer questions.
The school will be unique in offering all students access to learning through one-to-one technology in the classroom. In addition, the school will feature a smaller learning environment and rigorous academic standards. Students who attend will have the option to play sports at their zoned campus.
Spring Leadership Academy is just one of the new schools opening this fall. In addition, thanks to the district’s bond program, Springwoods Village Middle School will open in the north part of the district and feature an International Baccalaureate program. Roberson Middle School will move into a replacement campus.
