Springstone is that very special school that teaches in ways that all students can learn and appropriately challenges its students academically, so they are right up to par with California standards. Springstone creates a comfortable and accepting environment where the students can be themselves, have fun, and know they are valued for their unique points of view. The friends my son met in eighth grade are still among his best friends today. Our son has gone on to a four-year college in Florida and has maintained an above average GPA. He is now concluding his sophomore year. One of his best Springstone friends is also at a private four-year college in California, and others are doing very well at local junior colleges. I think this speaks volumes for what a great job Springstone has done to prepare our kids for their next stage of life. We are very grateful to The Springstone School!

Activities

Clubs

Art Club – Students engage in a variety of crafts; drawing, painting, sculpture, mask making, and more.

Dance Committee – The place to plan and organize the high school dances. Students in this club are responsible for raising money, creating a theme, purchasing decorations and food, and setting up/cleaning up every dance.

Girls' Group - Typically in this population there are fewer girls. This club provides our girls with the opportunity to connect and address challenges specific to them. The club also provides the girls a place to do “girly” things; paint their nails, bake cupcakes, shop, and talk.

Guys Group - Come hang out with the guys!

Homework Club - Our students are invited to stay after school to get some extra guidance on their homework assignments before they get home.

Games and more- Join us Friday afternoons to end out the week with fun and free time before heading home.

Strategy Games - In one of our more popular clubs, students have the opportunity to learn and practice such games as chess, go, and Risk.

Yearbook - Students learn basics of photography, design and layout to create the contents of our yearbook. In addition students work on their writing skills and interviewing skills.

Special Events

Winter Dance - A chance to practice social skills in a more formal setting, try out some new dance moves, and have fun with friends.

Prom - The Springstone School invites all grades to attend our Prom. Students are required to dress formally and use proper etiquette as they dine and dance with friends.
