Our Values

At Mainspring Academy, we believe in…

  • Teamwork: Through teamwork and collaboration, a student will make significant gains. We recognize teachers, parents, therapists, family and community members as an integral part of the student’s success.

  • Communication: Open dialogue among staff members, parents and administrators is key to a student’s success in school, home and community settings.

  • Personal Growth: Through modeling and curriculum, we teach our students self-respect, self-discipline and self-knowledge. We also foster an environment that promotes values such as responsibility, diversity and inclusion.

  • Culture: Honesty, integrity and fairness are central to a productive and nurturing environment. We support staff, students and parents in their efforts to encompass these values and display them in their interactions with each other providing a nurturing and safe environment for all.

  • Tenacity: It is our core belief that with measurable and appropriate goals, regardless of difference or disability, all students can succeed! We never give up on our students!
