As a past parent, I cannot thank the school enough for my children's wonderful early education. At the time, the school only went to 6th grade; however, they were so independent in their love of learning, they are successful in their adult lives.

Over the past 11 years, the affiliation we have had with CSS has been enlightening and most satisfying. To have watched our son, along with his classmates, grow in stature, maturity and in an unprecedented way. We truly believe that our CSS is the epitome of alternative private school education. Our motto: "Together all at Clear Spring School promote a lifelong love of learning through a hands-on and hearts-engaged educational environment." Check it out, it is so right on.

(Clear Spring School has been providing students with a hands-on, hearts-engaged quality education for over FORTY years.) My daughter is seven and has been a CSS student since she was three. The preschool program and teacher were instrumental in her transformation from a shy toddler to a confident, expressive elementary student. As a parent who attended public school I would recommend Clear Spring to any family looking for an alternative, enlightened, and intimate education option for their child.
