Springbrook houses an alternative program for the district, an Elementary Montessori. This program is based on Maria Montessori’s philosophy of education and follows the Montessori curriculum, as well as meeting California Content Standards. Enrollment in this program is conducted by lottery, with the Parent Information Night and application window usually occurring in February. The student must live in the Irvine Unified School District school boundaries. 

The 2022-2023 application window for new students is now open.

Click HERE for the New Student Application form for 2022-2023. The application deadline is 3:00 P.M. Friday, February 25, 2022.

Two important points:

  • New students include siblings of students currently in our Montessori program.
  • Students applying for Grade 1 must be 6 years old by Sept. 2, 2022.

The only Montessori Information Night will be held Wednesday, February 16, 2022 (6-7 p.m.).  Note: The date and time are firm, however, the format is "to be determined" (in-person vs virtual) at this point.
