I want to share something with you, because I don't believe Ryan would have done it without his experience at Springstone. If Ryan had stayed in public high school, his electives would have been for resources (English and math). He wouldn't have had the experience or confidence of cooking and preparing food for guests.

Activities

Clubs

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

Book Club – Avid readers get together to discuss content of the book of the month.

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.
