    Welcome to Mary Walker School District

    We are located in Springdale, Washington, a rural community in the northeast part of the State.  In addition to Springdale Preschool (traditional and ECEAP), our district consists of six (6) traditional and Alternative Learning Experience (ALE) schools:  Springdale Elementary (K-5), Springdale Middle School (6-8), Mary Walker High School (9-12), Mary Walker Alternative High School (9-12), Mary Walker Promise (K-12) and Springdale Academy (K-12).  


    Our Vision

    Prepare all students for learning at the post-secondary level.


    Message from our Superintendent

    Every school year is a chance to begin a fresh start, with new goals, high expectations and wonderful plans for the future. Together I hope we will improve instruction, increase student learning, develop a pleasant environment and have a safe school year.

    Our Schools are committed to helping all children develop the knowledge, skills and attitudes fundamental to achieving individual satisfaction and to becoming responsible, contributing citizens. The District promotes the development of intellectual, physical and creative competencies and skills of all students to reach their highest potential.

    As superintendent, my vision is that every member of this district have access to resources that will provide the opportunity to acquire the knowledge, skill and ability to achieve the level of success each member desires, in the endeavor they choose to pursue. Our goals, expectations and initiatives are designed to facilitate the achievement of that endeavor for each of us.

    A caring and collaborative professional environment, high quality leadership, curriculum and goal alignment, focused intentional instruction with comprehensive data analysis of teaching and learning will prove most important in assisting us to continually meet the obligations of meeting today’s challenges.

    As superintendent, I will promote and facilitate goal alignment within the admin team and attempt to relay to the staff proper communication for continued success in meeting the needs of all of our students.


    Rick L. Winters, Interim Superintendent
