We love the reduced instructional hours and many fun field trips. The school culture is a charming blend of privileged and provincial. The school screens out sub-advanced students in order to control the quality of our child's peer group. This school has it all!

Spring Hill has exceeded our expectations of what a school could be! Excellent motivated and creative teachers who meet the students individual needs to help each child reach their full potential. Our child is being challenged and learning above the grade level, but most importantly our child loves to come to school and never wants to miss a day!
