- School Motto: Sorrento Springs Shines
Sorrento Springs prides itself on the school motto: "Sorrento Springs Shines!" Together with the efforts of involved parents, a caring community, and professional teachers and administrators, our students are provided opportunities to participate and excel in many engaging activities.
Early in 2001, the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education awarded Sorrento Springs an Accelerated Schools grant. The Accelerated Schools model promotes "powerful learning" through the principles of unity of purpose, building on strengths, and empowerment with responsibility. The process began at Sorrento Springs with parents, staff, students, and community members coming together to create a vision. Focused attention to this vision keeps our school community connected. Staff and parents meet regularly in cadres and committees to study, learn, and collaborate in the areas of communication arts, technology, character education, and membership.
The Sorrento Springs student council is a training ground for young leaders. The focus is on developing leadership skills while sharing, caring, and serving others. The theme "Working Together Makes Us Better" highlights the impact each individual can have on the larger group. Our boys and girls develop their leadership skills and have fun while they lead their friends.
Sorrento Springs shines even more brightly with the support of our PTO. The PTO sponsors many exciting educational programs throughout the year. Through PTO's support and funding, boys and girls have received student planners, field trips, special assemblies, additional technology, and a science lab.
In an exciting, caring environment, Sorrento Springs teachers share a vision of excellence for our students and work hard to deliver a well-rounded, challenging curriculum. By building a strong foundation for academic success, our boys and girls continue to grow and develop into life-long learners.
