On The Road To Math Fact Fluency With Reflex

To help build math fact fluency and supplement classroom instruction, students in 2nd - 5th grades can log in to Reflex Math while at home. Reflex Math is a game-based program designed to help students learn and master basic addition, subtraction, multiplication and division facts. The educational program is adaptive and individualized per student. It works at the child’s own pace and increases in difficulty as they improve.


Students in 2nd - 5th grades can log in to Reflex Math using their Google login to access their Clever portal. Reflex Math is then an option that the students can select from this portal.

TSI Assessment

The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) Assessment is offered to Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors to prove college readiness. There are two parts to the test: ELAR with Essay and MATH. Students must take and pass both portions of the TSI, unless they have proven college readiness by taking the ACT or SAT, in order to qualify to enroll in dual credit courses, early college admission courses, or to enroll in college in Texas after graduation.


Spring Hill will offer the TSI on the following dates at the High School: January 27, February 10 and 24, March 24, and April 14 and 28. The cost to sign up is $15 for the full test. Students should contact High School Counselor Allison Williamson to sign up.

Time To Update

The start of a new year is a great time to update your personal information. If your phone number, address, or email address has changed since the beginning of the school year, be sure to contact your child's campus office to update your information on file with the school district. This ensures you will receive important communication from Spring Hill ISD regarding your student. Thank you for your help!
