“Catherine grew enormously during her Springstone years. She will benefit for the rest of her life from the many ways in which everyone at Springstone both nurtured and challenged her. She has a terrific foundation upon which to continue to develop toward her full potential.”

David Messman

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.
