About Springwoods Elementary School

Springwoods Elementary School opened in 1985 and received construction updates in 2015 and a brand-new 13 room addition and 2 additional playgrounds in 2019. Springwoods Elementary is nestled in the cozy Lake Ridge community.  Springwoods, surrounded by the natural beauty of the Lake Ridge woods, is affectionately called, “The Woods.”   With its shining legacy of high achievement and its bright future, there’s no question why we say, “It’s all good in The Woods!”  

Springwoods Elementary School has been designated by the Commonwealth of Virginia as a Fully Accredited school and has earned multiple PWC School of Excellence Awards.  Springwoods has received The Governor's School of Excellence Award, as well as the National Blue-Ribbon School Award, and recently the VDOE Continuous Improvement Award.  Springwoods is Virginia’s first World Kindness School and was designated a Purple Star School in 2019.

Springwoods Elementary School implemented the house system, creating 4 Eagle Nests that represent character traits that its students and staff practice to live by.  All staff and students belong to one of the nests, which all have unique colors, mascots, cheers and chants.  We are 4 Eagle Nests and 1 Eagle Nation!

Communities Served

Springwoods serves the community of Lake Ridge north of Old Bridge Road, along Springwoods Drive, and south of Old Bridge Road along Smoketown Rd to Beaver Ford Rd.
