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!

College Guidance

At the Springstone School, we very strongly believe that transitions start now. At the beginning of 9th grade, each student is assigned a counselor. The counselor and the student collaborate to create a detailed Transition Plan which sets goals for each student so that s/he is prepared for life after graduation. As part of our Access Program, students complete career inventories and explore aptitudes throughout their high school years.

All juniors and seniors spend a week visiting local college campuses and other post high school programs. As part of that visit, our students are introduced to the Disabled Student Services (DSS) office in the event that they will seek some of those services when they enroll. Students also receive help from their counselor in filling out their applications. Springstone is an approved testing site for the PSAT, SAT, and ACT for students with approved testing accommodations.
