It served me well, when I couldn't handle the stupidity of public school.

The curriculum challenges the students because it is presented in a creative way and there is frequent positive non-judgmental dialog among teacher and student.

Wellsprings has been a great fit for my son. He attended public high school prior to Wellsprings and was not motivated. Since attending Wellsprings, he is interested in learning and is inspired by the creative environment and the teachers that he has. I cannot say enough good things about this school and the great people who teach and work there!

Wellsprings was a lifesaver for my daughter. She went there as a frightened freshamn and has bloomed into a self confident and aware young lady.Wellsprings had without a doubt given her lifeskills and knowledge she will carry with her for the rest of her life.Bravo for wellsprings!

This is an outstanding alternative school for young people who just do not fit in the public school mold. Small class size, progressive faculty, a focus on community building and a willingness to deal realistically with student's issues and concerns makes this school unique. My duaghter would have dropped out of a traditional high school, but now she attends school regularly and takes pride in her accomplishments.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
