Engaged learning occurs daily at Springmont. We offer an environment where lessons are experienced, not just taught. Springmont has a long history of providing an educational experience crafted to each stage of a child's development. Our curriculum is as individualized as development itself. This is everything you want for your child's education, and no school does it like Springmont.
An individualized pace and freedom of choice are balanced with responsibility, allowing children to repeat and perfect concepts and move on to new ones, without being isolated from their peers. Multi-age classrooms allow children to learn from and to mentor other students, an essential principle of Montessori education. Teachers act as “guides,” linking together all areas of study and directing students’ focus toward learning necessary skills.
Springmont's after-school, extra-curricular programs for Elementary and Middle School students provide a wide variety of Enrichment opportunities, such as karate, chess and art classes. Intramural sports and Running Club are also offered as after-school options.
Outdoor learning experiences are integral to the curriculum. In addition to the hands-on, outdoor experiences available through our classroom gardens and wooded campus, Springmont's has an 86-acre Poplar Springs Landschool, located in Summerville, Georgia, just 80 miles from the Sandy Springs campus. Experiences at the Landschool vary from survival lessons with a naturalist to mapping and topography study.
