Spring School
www.springschool.com

Educators such as Hirsch bemoan the fact that most schools today teach isolated facts: this week a unit on plants, and next week a unit on planets. There is no overall plan to teach the history of our culture, and graduates are "culturally illiterate." At the Spring School we have developed a unique curriculum, one which, while based on Montessori principles, sets us apart even from other Montessori schools. All students, from Kindergarten through 8th grade, work through a four-year integrated curriculum.
