School Notes

  • - Small Class Sizes
  • - Certified and passionate teachers
  • - Our teachers foster collaborative skills, creativity, critical thinking, and effective communication
  • - Teachers give parents and students a weekly syllabus of work so they know the expectations for the days they work at home. This structure helps students develop independent working skills as well as gives them more free time in the evenings to pursue other interests.

School Reviews

My children have been enrolled at DaySpring for several years and we love the university model. It allows my children to have a classroom experience with professional teachers and peers while still getting down time at home and the opportunity to work independently. My children have become so much more responsible and agile with time management. Our lives are not ruled by night/weekend homework. DaySpring is also unique in that classrooms are mixed age and children can have the same teacher for 2 or more years, so they really grow in relationships. I love that families can tailor enrichment classes for their K-8 students. The kids and families at DaySpring are kind and down to earth, and my middle school and high school students report positive social experiences. If you want to be involved in your child's education, this is the school for you!
