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 home study 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 home study 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.

Murrieta Student Center Principal, Julia Krisel, shares her experience in creating 21st Century learning environments for all educational stakeholders.
