Tucked away in Northwest Arkansas, we offer a culturally rich learning environment. We put children first, focusing on high academic and character centered education. The town of Valley Springs, with a population of approximately 300, is in the southeast corner of Boone County. It is primarily an agricultural and rural community with the majority of its citizens working in the Harrison area. 

Highway 65 is the main thoroughfare of Northwest Arkansas. Located 8.5 miles east of Harrison and 42.7 miles from Branson, Missouri, our citizens have the benefits of rural living with the amenities of these nearby cities within close driving distance. To the north of us is Diamond City where we have access to Bull Shoals Lake and recreation areas. Whereas to the south in Newton County, we can float the Buffalo National River or hike its nature trails and enjoy its scenic beauty. 

The community of Valley Springs consists of a Post Office, a General Store with a deli, McClinton's Quarry and various small, locally owned businesses. It is the home of three churches--Valley Springs Baptist Church, Rally Hill Community Church, and River of Life Assembly of God Church. The churches within the community and surrounding areas provide educational, recreational, and religious opportunities for the students in the district. 

Cultural experiences such as plays and concerts are available at North Arkansas College and at the historic downtown Lyric Theatre. Extra athletic experiences are offered through the Brandon Burlesworth Youth Center and Millbrook Sports Complex in nearby Harrison. The school provides the majority of the recreational facilities for the community. The school received a new softball field for the 2021-2022 school year and also has tennis courts. The residents of Valley Springs enjoy the relaxing environment of the local springs and city park. The Girl Scouts and the Boy Scouts of America are active in the community.

The Boone County Educational Cooperative is finalizing its Hazard Mitigation Plan draft prior to submission to the Arkansas Division of Emergency Management and FEMA for review and approval. The plan assesses natural hazards’ risks and vulnerabilities to the school districts of Alpena, Bergman, Harrison, Lead Hill, Omaha, and Valley Springs. It provides recommendations to increase their hazard resiliency and reduce risk. In doing so, these actions aim to protect property, life, and the operations of these school districts. Due to current conditions, the draft plan will not be available for viewing in person, but is instead available in PDF format or with each school district’s superintendent. If you would like a copy of the draft plan emailed to you, please contact
We invite you to take the next two weeks to review the draft, provide any input you may have, or ask any related questions. Please direct all inquiries to:
