Community Connected Classroom
Our school in a real world setting
In the heart of the city
Children at Spruce Street School utilize downtown resources and infrastructure - libraries, parks, museums, transportation, and businesses - to anchor their learning in real world settings that are literally at the school's doorstep.
We model and teach respect for all types of diversity...
It begins with Difference
...including cultural, ethnic, racial, economic, family structure, sexual orientation, gender identity, learning differences, beliefs, and abilities.
Our multi-age classrooms usually span three age groups.
Dynamic and individualized
Students of diverse ages and skills interact to master developmentally appropriate practices at their own pace in small, flexible groups.
