School Notes

  • The Hillsprings Learning Center is providing a short term, accelerated skill acquisition program for students that enables them the opportunity to achieve at a level commensurate with their intellectual abilities.
  • In addition, our program is designed to help students develop a positive self-concept through successful experiences and an understanding of their individual learning styles, to prepare them to be independent learners in a regular classroom setting, and to assist them to set realistic goals for themselves.
