Pursuing excellence in a nurturing, safe, and innovative environment.

Academics: We meet students where they are in their academic journey. With specialized reading programs that allow students to advance their skills and build confidence and a math curriculum that goes beyond teaching facts and develops deeper-level thinking, Snyder Primary and Intermediate Schools are committed to helping each student achieve success. In addition, each campus places a strong emphasis on STEM, inquiry-based learning, and career exploration.

Leadership: With a foundation in the 7 Habits, we firmly believe that all students can and should be leaders here at school and in their families and community. We foster opportunities for our students to be leaders every day.

Fine Arts: Students benefit from art and music programs taught by enthusiastic educators passionate about their subject matter.

Physical Education: Students take breaks throughout the day to allow their minds to rest and reset. Students have safe, structured physical education daily, outdoor recess, and in-classroom brain breaks.

Gifted and Talented: A gifted and talented program is available for students who qualify. The GT referral window opens in November each school year. For more information on available services, please contact the school counselors. 

Social & Emotional Support: School counselors provide whole class guidance lessons and can offer short-term small group or individual counseling support as needed. Positive behavior supports and acknowledgments are used and are embedded in our campus expectations and procedures for all students.

Additional Academic Support: Tutorials, RTI (Response to Intervention), and Special Education Services are available to students who need additional support. When needed, our certified staff will meet with the parent, student, teacher, and other staff to develop a plan for success.

Dual-Language Program: Elementary students have an opportunity to learn a second language over the course of six years.  Students apply and enroll in Kindergarten and remain in the program through 5th grade.

STEM Labs: Both campuses have dedicated STEM spaces equipped with hands-on materials like legos and a lego wall, robots, 3D printers, and other technology. These labs are the perfect area to foster creativity and expand their knowledge. Additionally, each campus is home to a student-run greenhouse to grow and harvest plants. Students also visit our own student-based enterprise and “living lab,” Evergreen Research & Retail Greenhouse. Snyder High School students manage the greenhouses, totaling over 20,500 sq. feet, where they grow and sell plants to the community.

In this video, Ms. Stewart is teaching her art students about color theory! These third graders are learning about primary, secondary, and intermediate colors on the color wheel. After the lesson, students created their own paintings. The lesson sparked their imagination, with many students creating and naming unique colors!
