“I chose Sparhawk because everyone feels welcomed here and it’s like a big family.”

Ella’s favorite class is history with Matt. When Ella walks into his room she feels a sense of relief. Ella’s favorite Sparhawk adventure that she's been on was her 8th grade trip to Washington, D.C. “I will always cherish the memories that I've made and continue to make here at Sparhawk.”

Ian | Grade 11

“I didn't choose Sparhawk, as I was basically born here! I've been here for 12 years.”

Ian is a current 10th grader who has grown up going to Sparhawk. Ian loves the people you meet here, the experiences at Sparhawk, and the friends you make. He has grown very fond of the Masterclasses and the Winterim trips. “The best Sparhawk adventure I've been on was going to Texas because I really liked the people and the experience overall.”

- Sparhawk Parent

laugh, learn, play

"What can I say? A school after my own heart! Where children laugh, learn, and play! Where children learn about community, world citizenship, and the art of being human!"

 

- Sparhawk Parent

loving school

"Awesome learning environment for my 5th grader! He went from a large school with some bullying issues to this small, loving community where learning is much more of an exploration and experience than fitting round pegs into round holes and checking off basic rote milestones of the industrial/educational model. He went from saying he hated school to saying he likes school. That's huge!"

test: book

"Sparhawk has been a gift for our family. My child has attended Sparhawk now for five years. During this time we have seen him blossom into a kind, compassionate, bright child who loves learning. He thrives in the environment that they have created."
