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. 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 neuro-diverse population.
The Springstone School is an independent, non profit, Middle School and Community High School that serves students with Autism 1, Non-verbal Learning Disability, Attention Deficit Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and other Executive Functioning challenges.
Each of the grade level classes (one class per grade) in both the Springstone Middle School and the Springstone Community High School are contained classrooms with low stimulus and a maximum of 8 students per grade level.
