Spring Hill School is 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 while gaining a deep understanding of subject matters.
Spring Hill School provides an authentic Montessori classroom in Toddler through Kindergarten programs, and as students move up to the Elementary and Middle School from the Montessori foundation, they advance to a project and research-based, integrated program with a focus on design-thinking and STEAM (science, technology, arts, math) to prepare them to meet the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century.
