An Education that Matters
Dear Prospective Families,
Welcome to Spring Hill School, a respectful and innovative independent school believing in the intellect and potential of each of our children. At the heart of our school is a hands-on, global education that fosters joyful learning and stimulates passionate engagement, elaborate thinking, creating, making, and inventing. This is a place where our children can ask questions, wonder, explore, receive individual as well as team guidance as they master their academic skills and thrive within a deep understanding of subject matters.
In a diverse and global society such as ours, we understand the importance of raising children who develop a strong sense of self, while still being valuable team players, and ultimately discover their own role in becoming courageous change-makers for a better future. We have reimagined a real-life education which not only exceeds standards by providing advanced academics, social and emotional maturity/leadership, daily rich practices and a collection of experiences that spark our children’s imagination, but also generate in each child the will to put forth his or her best effort in learning HOW to learn.
As you walk through each classroom at Spring Hill, you will feel the strength generated by such a positive and supportive community. You will see the excitement of in-depth learning as third graders record in their science journals their observations of the green house that they built in their architecture class to investigate the impact of global warming over different surfaces of their outdoor classroom. The first graders are evaluating and measuring their soil segmentation samples, while the kindergartners build a rocket to travel to space. You’ll peek in at toddlers joyfully juicing fresh organic vegetables from their garden to make a tasty green ice cream treat.
You’ll also see the richness of our environment and how a primary focus is on multicultural and bilingual programs, where our children learn various languages and study cultures, celebrating diversity and honoring differences with flexibility, empathy, passion and collaborative leadership.
Thank you for your interest in our school. I chose Spring Hill 25 years ago for my own daughter as I believed strongly in its vision and the power of its multifaceted education. Words alone cannot convey the ambiance and “experience” of becoming a part of the Spring Hill community. I invite you to see it for yourself and visit our two beautiful campuses with playgrounds situated on idyllic landscapes. Call us today for a tour to explore Spring Hill’s advanced and engaging curriculum and to rediscover your inner child – envision climbing a tree, playing in the natural setting playgrounds, spending time in the fort-building space, feeding the chickens, reading a book under the canopy of the outdoor classroom, plucking an apple from the apple tree or snacking from the organic garden. Experience a unique education that has built a tradition of raising generations of very successful, purposeful and ambitious alumni with pride while providing the innovation of a 21st Century education.
