Springdale Elementary School is a true neighborhood school in a close-knit community. The Springdale neighborhood is known for its own distinctive character & convenience: walkable streets, a bustling commercial village with various stores, restaurants, a movie theater & a Metro-North station.
This school is rich with history. Did you know:
Springdale began as a one room school house in 1855.
In 1895 there was a girls entrance and a boys entrance.
A new school was built in 1904 (see below) and the original school was moved and became part of the second story of a house now standing on Weed Hill Avenue.
Children used to take the trolley up Hope Street to get to school.
In the 1800s children used to play a game called œKitty Over at recess. One team would throw the ball over the building and if someone from the other side caught it before it bounced, he ran around and tried to tag someone to bring him back to his side. The game continued until no one was left on one side.
