Principal

School can be a place where children love learning... a place filled with wonder, joy, and a sense of positive identity and connection.

I am so grateful for Spectrum. This amazing school is teaching my children to approach the world with a love for process over perfection and equipping them with the ability to think independently. With a focus on the joy of learning rather than homework and test scores, the teachers and staff are supporting my kids on their journey to becoming thoughtful, engaged, and caring adults.

When one visits Spectrum you are able to see the age interaction between all of the students and their smiles. The atmosphere is one of learning but sharing that love among all. Their Compass program is one that reminds us of Bloom Academic Focus Program.  The staff demonstrate a care and desire for all to succeed which is a very important key for a child’s love of learning.
