Mission

Wellspring Learning Community aims to establish a unique school learning environment in which students from diverse backgrounds are given every opportunity to develop their intellectual, emotional and social capacities, academic skills, and individual talents in all areas.

Bilingualism

Wellspring's founders designed its curriculum and staffing to support student learning in both Arabic and English equally, and in all subject areas. All students study French as a third language.

The International Bacclaureate Programme

Wellspring is notable in Lebanon for its participation in the IB Primary Years Programme. The subject areas of the PYP are language, social studies, mathematics, science and technology, arts, and personal, social and physical education. Students are required to learn a second language during the programme. At Wellspring, this is a third language, French. Assessment is carried out by teachers according to strategies provided by the IB, and with respect to guidelines to what the students should learn specified in the curriculum model.

Technology

Computer-assisted teaching and learning, and interactive whiteboards are utilized in keeping with Wellspring's emphasis on technology in the classroom.

Community, Careers, Sustainability and the Environment

As its name suggests, Wellspring seeks to foster community, and community service, among all its constituents: students, teachers, staff, parents and area residents. Sustainability and respect for the environment are reflected in its Learning Garden, recycling program, and Living Workshop, and in its career education program.
