- We believe all students should be self motivated, respectful, and demonstrate integrity with compassion for self and others.
- We believe the teacher should facilitate an innovative and highly diverse learning environment to meet the unique needs and interests of all students.
- We believe all students can learn when provided with a meaningful, safe, engaging environment that promotes communication, collaboration, problem solving and professional ethics.
Established in 1978 with an enrollment of 667, Hirsch Elementary was named for Pearl M. Hirsch, a Spring ISD teacher for 33 years. Mrs. Hirsch joined the Spring staff in 1935, beginning at the school in Bammel. Prior to that, she taught 14 years in the Tomball-Klein area. Mrs. Hirsch’s daughter, Mrs. Inez Tanner, was a Spring High graduate and came back to teach in Spring schools. For 11 years, they served on the same faculty at Spring Elementary (now known as Salyers Elementary School). Together, Mrs. Hirsch and Mrs. Tanner served the District for a total of 55 years.
