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.

Pragmatic Language

Springstone integrates academic and social-emotional learning into every aspect of the school day. Springstone defines pragmatic language as the presentation of communication in a socially fluid manner. Students practice and acquire pragmatic language and social skills during academic and elective classes, during a dedicated social skills class and during experiential activities in our Access Program. Through repetition, modeling, and counseling, our students grow into adults able to move through their community with greater social fluidity.
