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!
