School Mission

The mission of Running Springs Elementary School is to fully utilize all resources at our disposal including financial, personnel, and materials to provide the highest quality education possible. Decisions about the instructional program are based on student performance data including the California Standards Test and internal school wide measures. Collaborative decision making between staff and parents maximizes the power of the available resources, and benefits each child and the whole school as well. Challenging educational experiences are provided that incorporate curriculum and promote character development. Decisions regarding programs and implementation are made using information from current best practice research. Parents are included as an integral part of our school educational program, and are involved in many ways with their children’s education.
