Valley Springs Elementary


The Brandon Valley School District was originated in 1962 reorganizing with the Valley Springs School District, Brandon School District and twelve common school districts creating one district.  This new district encompasses 128 square miles bordering Sioux Falls to the west, Minnesota and Iowa to the east, Canton to the south and Garretson to the north. 


Our district has a high school, middle school and four elementary schools including Valley Springs Elementary.  Located on the west edge of Valley Springs, the Valley Springs Elementary School was originally constructed in 1922.  There have been several recent additions and remodeling projects including a 2,000 sq. ft. classroom addition, new heating system, air conditioning, and a new playground. The latest remodeling occurred in the summer of 2008. At Valley Springs Elementary, the small town atmosphere helps promote the belief that all students can and will learn.


Brandon Valley School District is fortunate to be one of the very few districts in the state of South Dakota that is enjoying growth in the number of students and taxable valuation.  The growth of our enrollment places Brandon Valley in a very favorable financial position that enables the district to maintain small class sizes and provide a complete curriculum for the students.  Small class sizes also contribute to the fact that Brandon Valley test scores are among the highest in our conference.
