13 Parent Reviews for Springside School

Lower school is rigorous and nurturing. New head of lower school is energetic, supportive and responsive to students and parents. The merger with Chestnut Hill Academy mostly affects the Upper Schools. Both Springside and CHA have committed to keeping K-8 single sex. Let's hope it stays that way, and ...  Read more

I am very disappointed in the college placement of the students and SAT scores

My daughter attended Springside for 14 years, Pre-K - 12. She was challenged from the moment she started until the day she graduated. At Springside she found her inner artist, her inner athlete, and a life-long love of learning. The school taught her self-discipline, compassion, gave her impeccable study-skills ...  Read more

I have been at this school for ten years and I believe that it is a great school because it raises girls to be responsible and powerful in all aspects of life.

Instead, it focuses on developing girls as leaders -- teaching them to be confident in their abilities, ...  Read more

I am a senior 'lifer' at Springside. I haven't always liked Springside, but I have come to realize it is the best place for me.

Excellent teachers, technology and physical plant. Sports have traditionally lagged, but a new 50k sq ft. field house and a new AD will change that. Lots of parent involvement in lower school, but the Administration tries to wean parents off by Middle School, which is truly in the best interest of the ...  Read more

My 9-year-old daughter, who tends to be shy and perfectionistic, has thrived at Springside because they are very nurturing, and encouraging without putting the students into a pressure cooker. The faculty helps the girls handle the social and physical challenges as well as the academic ones.

Extracurriculars are excellent. Sports teams are good, though are hardly competition in the InterAc league. Most of the coaches know that the teams consist of STUDENT athletes. School comes first. The large amount of clubs gives social and valuable life opportunities to each and every student. Art and ...  Read more
