Dr. Jessica Spallino
Founder and CEO

We have experienced a few Charters and none have come close to what method has been able to provide us. We look for a community and support for my Charter and Method his provided that for us on a weekly in some weeks even daily basis. They have amazing field trips, amazing staff and are very kind and relatable. I highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for extra support or even just a good sense of community while homeschooling. My son has been so proud to tell people about his Charter this year. Here is to many more years making friends and memories.
