About Our School
Boyd Elementary is a collaborative community developing internationally-minded learners who form real world connections and inspire action toward peace.
Located in the historic Midtown neighborhood of north-central Springfield, Boyd Elementary School first opened in 1908 and is today home to over 200 students. This active and diverse neighborhood works closely with the school to create a caring community for all our students.
Boyd Elementary is one of only two elementary schools in Missouri authorized to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program. IB PYP focuses on the total growth of the developing child by offering an international, inquiry based curriculum of themes that go across all subjects in the school. All students receive weekly second language instruction in Spanish.
Boyd Elementary participates with nearby Drury University as a partner school, which improves academic performance by addressing developmental issues that impact a child’s academic progress.
More than 75 percent of our staff hold a master’s degree or higher. Our teachers exemplify lifelong learning by participating in exceptional professional development throughout the nation.
