Welcome to Spalding Drive Elementary’s website! Spalding Drive has had the privilege of educating Sandy Spring’s children since 1966, and this year will be no exception! As Spalding Drive’s principal, I am honored to serve as the principal and instructional leader of a school with so much commitment to the students, parents, and the surrounding community.
Whether you are a current parent or a prospective new addition to our school, I welcome you to explore our website and learn about all the wonderful things that happen at Spalding Drive on a daily basis. Our staff is dedicated to providing our students with a rich, engaging, and rigorous academic environment that challenges our students to reach their academic potential. Our school is part of Fulton County’s charter system and our focus is on the STEAM content areas.
Our students are involved in project based learning as well as utilizing a fully equipped STEM and Technology lab. While we feel there is more to a school than just test scores, our students typically score higher in state and county assessments than most surrounding schools. In addition to our commitment to academics, I think you will also see on our website the involvement of business partners, an active Parent/Teacher Organization, and the enrichment activities our students receive through the hard work of everyone at our school. We enjoy an active parent group who help with events, both enrichment and academic, to support the needs of our staff and students.
I look forward to continuing my relationships, building on existing traditions, and starting some new ones as we all work together to make Spalding Drive the best elementary school in Fulton County!
