I chose: Homeschool
Why? Flexibility is extremely important to me and Springs is a great place to learn because I get my specific needs met.
Sofie says: “The best thing is that if I know a subject well, like math, I can continue to advance at my own pace. Also, if I need more help on a subject, I can take my time and really make sure I understand
it before moving on to the next concept. In addition to that, I get the one-on-one attention I need, a better education, and my Mom is a great teacher!”
Sofie is a well-known contortionist who appeared on America’s Got Talent and plans to run her own entertainment company or be a marine biologist – or maybe both!

It is estimated that there are close to 2 million children being homeschooled in the nation today. “Very different people are entering homeschooling than did 20 years back, “says Mitchell Stevens, author of Kingdom of Children, a History of Homeschooling, published by Princeton University Press. According to the federal government, up to three-quarters of the families that homeschool today say they do so primarily because they are worried about the quality of their children’s education.
