School Notes

  • Spring Street International School is a close-knit community dedicated to helping students from diverse backgrounds find their voice and passion to learn. We build problem-solvers, team-players, learners, and leaders through advanced academics and hands-on curriculum in a safe and beautiful setting.
  • We believe in...
  • Relationships: When students know that teachers care, students care what teachers know. Our teachers are mentors and guides, engaging students in academic inquiry and creating space to discover what ignites them.
  • Individuals: Every child is unique and deserves a unique education. We teach students, not classes, and tailor courses of study, assignments, and skill development around the needs of each individual student.
  • Creativity: Characterized by the ability to perceive the world in new ways, to make new connections, and to innovate solutions, creativity thrives in our unique environment. Our students develop their own opinions and critical thinking.
  • Experience: Learning emerges from doing and experiencing. Our students are not stuck at a desk. They work in groups, they lead, they present, they go beyond the walls of a classroom.
  • Spring Street International School accreditations: Cognia, the National Association of Independent Schools
