Who We Are
At Spring Creek Community School, we believe that all children are capable of individual high achievement. Each child walks through our doors with unique needs and interests and the perspective of their own lived experience; for us to truly educate and support each child as they navigates the world and engages in their own learning, every child at this school must be seen, known, and heard. We best support and nurture a child when we make every effort to know them and consider the world from their perspective. Adults and children alike are empowered when they have the supports, challenges, and encouragement necessary to take risks, learn self-reliance, and believe in themselves. Each student is entitled to an education that supports them in becoming empowered, independent, compassionate critical thinkers, and enables them to be successful on whatever path they choose. At Spring Creek Community School, students not only learn, they do, and experience, and develop the real-life skills and habits that prepare them to be successful in the real world.
Spring Creek Community School has a single goal: to help our students become healthy, independent, successful adults. Our curriculum, community partnerships, extra-curricular activities, elective courses, and Advisory program, are all focused on providing each student with learning experiences that meet their individual needs. Students at SCCS are citizens and community members; an entire community of teachers, administrators, educators, counselors, families, and friends are collaborating to support their journey to adulthood.
At SCCS, we emphasize the arts and technology across the curriculum; our teaching and learning focuses on critical thinking, creative thinking, and literacy, because these are the skills that are required to be successful in the 21st Century. Students who can ask questions and solve problems, who can navigate systems and institutions and negotiate with different perspectives, who can build relationships with others and approach even the most difficult task with both patience and confidence, these are students who have the tools and skills they need to have agency and choices in their adult lives. We believe that our students are entitled to an education that supports them in becoming empowered, independent, compassionate thinkers, and enables them to be successful on whatever path they choose. At Spring Creek Community School, students not only learn, they “do,” and experience, and develop the real-life skills and habits that prepare them to be successful in the real world.
