CA Distinguished School Logo

California Distinguished School 2020

North County Joint Union School District (Spring Grove School) has been recognized (once again) as a California Distinguished School.

AVID logo

Spring Grove School's AVID Program

By teaching and reinforcing academic behaviors and higher-level thinking at a young age, AVID Elementary teachers create a ripple effect in later grades. Elementary students develop the academic habits they will need to be successful in middle school, high school, and college, in an age-appropriate and challenging way. Children learn about organization, study skills, communication, and self-advocacy. AVID Elementary students take structured notes and answer and ask high-level questions that go beyond routine answers. Find out more about Spring Grove's AVID Program.

Orton-Gillingham Program

Spring Grove School's Orton-Gillingham Trained Teachers

Orton-Gillingham is a highly structured approach that breaks reading and spelling down into smaller skills involving letters and sounds, and then building on these skills over time. It also was the first approach to use multi-sensory teaching strategies to teach reading, which is considered extremely effective for teaching students with dyslexia. Find out more about Spring Grove's Orton-Gillingham Program.
