Murrieta Student Center (K-12)


murrieta-web Name: Riley Hatch
Age: 11 Grade: 6
I chose: Murrieta Student Center
Why? To try a school that would allow me to go
to a classroom, but also have Homeschool days. “Springs has the best teachers and they really care about the students.”
Riley says: “I love this school. It has been a
great experience for me. I am so thankful
that I get to go to Springs.” Riley swims every
chance she gets and plans to be a beach
lifeguard one day. She advises new students
to not be nervous and don’t stop trying their
best even when the work seems hard.

Murrieta Student Center provides a variety of programs for students from grades K-12 on our beautiful campus on Kalmia. All programs offer a unique small-school environment where everybody knows every students’ name.

Da Vinci Elementary (K-6) Classes are offered five days per week. Creative projects, core mastery and positive interpersonal skills are the focus of every grade.

Classical Academy (K-8) provides homeschooling families with two full days of classical education (M-T) along with the support of a classical education teacher for the other three homestudy days (W-F). Students get the best of homeschooling and the best of classroom instruction in this program.

Casa Montessori Academy (K-6) provides three days of in-class, authentic Montessori elementary education (W-F) along with project development and support for two homestudy days each week (M-T).

Montessori Middle School (7-8) melds the classical, socratic-style classroom experience with the hands-on mastery learning of Montessori in a five-day classroom program.

Homeschool High School Learning Center (9-12) offers pick-and-choose courses for students who are primarily homeschooled. These courses include advanced mathematics, lab sciences and other courses of interest to the Murrieta homeschooling community.
