"Spring Creek is considered an alternative school. It is not a school by choice but rather a temporary situation that provides detained adolescents an opportunity to continue their education when personal circumstances/behavior interfere with their opportunity to attend a school of choice...

Our goal is for every student to affirm his/her belief that he/she has value in society that is reinforced by developing a sense of self-responsibility and respect for learning. They learn that education is a lifelong process that includes the development and balance of all the dimensions of life; physical, mental, spiritual (personal value system), and social/emotional. The internalization and ownership of learning and character development is a must for a successful transition to the real world." - Dan Ottersberg, Assistant Principal
