    "My children were students at CSS for several years. This review is based on that experience, plus those of other CSS parents and 2 educators I know in the public schools. The Pre-K and K teacher, and her program at CSS are of such high quality that you could not get better at any price. At older grades, the teachers tend to continue to be kind and respectful to the children (depending who's teaching that year), fostering a healthy environment overall, but the academics are very weak as a whole. If you want your child to compete academically later on (eg, college entrance exams) or possibly jump into another school someday, monitor what they know and remember compared to common core standards. Supplement if needed. Just because students get glowing reviews and you see work in their notebooks doesn't mean they're anywhere near "grade level." If my child was having a problem with the public school, I'd consider CSS, but it would not have been our family's first choice if I knew then what I know now. I am a big fan of progressive education, but the academics at CSS do not do it justice. Also, beware of claims re: accomplished alumni b/c many did not go all the way through CSS."

    "small classes, hands on learning, progressive, creative learning. Clear Springs centers on the varied individual needs of the student."

    "Clear Spring School is such a blessing to our family. Not only are different learning styles accepted, they are nurtured. My children are learning not only the three r's but also a handful of life skills from the conflict resolution policy to the 2 annual camping trips. I would recommend this school to anyone who is interested in their children's education."

    "Our son loves to learn thanks to Clear Spring School where he attended for 11 years. The camping trips and travel were fantastic educational experiences. The dedication of the teachers is remarkable. CSS is one of three schools in Arkansas accredited by the National Association of Independent Schools. Our son had a full scholarship to college and a great package for law school at the University of Virginia, one of the top 10 law schools. Clear Spring is not a school for those who NEED discipline but for those who want to learn. The focus is on behavior not discipline. Our son will always love to learn because of CSS and that is priceless to us as parents."

    "I experienced Clear Springs School first in 1975, when my oldest daughter was able to attend. Years later, my second batch of kids were able to attend for several years. Now, my grandkids attend there. It's a family tradition. CSS is truly dedicated to development of the whole child into a whole adult. Not just the academics are stressed here, but life skills that are never taught in public schools. So much of their learning experiences are hands on. The camping trips are never forgotten. They learn to work with all ages of people. They learn skills for getting through the rough spots of adult hood. Most of the kids that attend Clear Springs School become travelers, college graduates, community volunteers, all round good citizens. Citizens that are intelligent, forward thinking and willing to work."
