However, Spring Hill has been named one of the top five fastest-growing cities in the Kansas City metropolitan area and the third fastest-growing city in the state of Kansas. Enrollment for 2017-18 was 730, and enrollment for 2018-19 is currently estimated to be 785 for grades 9-12. Overall district enrollment, including K12 online school, is estimated to be 3,193 for 2018-19.  The graduation rate of SHHS is 99%, with 81% of students, on average, continuing to post-secondary education (41% of those to four-year and 32% to two-year colleges).

Spring Hill is in close proximity to Interstate 35.  The district covers 71 square miles in Johnson and Miami counties, including portions of Olathe and Overland Park, as well as Spring Hill.  The area that the USD#230 district serves has become favorable as affordable new housing for families desiring a small-town setting with a school system that offers excellent education.  USD230 currently has four elementary and two middle schools, as well as a partnership with K12 Virtual School.  Construction is currently underway on an additional middle school slated to open in the fall session of 2019.
