Montessori

Springbrook is home the IUSD’s only Elementary Montessori program, which serves students in grades 1 – 6. 

Students in our Montessori program work towards mastery of their grade-level, end-of-year standards on track with all other grade-level peers at Springbrook (and IUSD). However, the instructional approaches used within the program are based on Maria Montessori’s philosophy of education.

We are a distinct program fully integrated into a neighborhood school.  We use a lottery process that gives families within Springbrook’s attendance area, as well as families all across the district, a chance to take part in the program.  Students must live in the Irvine Unified School District school boundaries to enroll in the program. 

IUSD uses an age-based enrollment process. Students applying for Grade 1 must be born between 9/2/17 - 9/1/18
