Our Mission

Our mission is to embed social skills, occupational therapy, mindfulness, and community engagement with an academically rigorous curriculum in small classroom settings in order to support the growth, development, and achievement of our neurodiverse population. The Springstone Middle School and The Springstone Community High School are independent, non-profit schools.

The Springstone Middle School is the first middle school in the nation to exclusively address the unique challenges students with Autism 1, and other associated diagnoses, often have in the typical classroom setting without having to do a typical pull out model that often leads to increased disconnection with peers and group. The goal was to embed services in classes to prepare them to be independent thinkers and doers that engage in their community facilitated by school support/structure, to increase peer relationships, and work on independent living skills. The Springstone Community High School then grew by popular demand to expand our program to include grades 6th through 12th and continued this goal and an increased and streamlined focus for post high school success.

We have the following goals for all our students:

Appreciate the Diversity of various cultures and communities

Identify and Articulate the perspectives of self and others

Develop skills necessary to become responsible, flexible, and resilient

Acquire skills necessary to move effectively through the community

Understand the relationship between independence and dependence
