Description:

Admits children who have been identified as having a learning difference, an auditory processing deficit, or a perceptual difficulty. Other students have been identified as having dyslexia, being reading disabled or learning disabled, or exhibiting ADD/ADHD.

School's Approach

We believe each child is a unique individual whose potential has yet to be realized. To help students develop their potential, we endeavor to provide an inclusive and supportive environment that is grounded in an appreciation of who each student is as a learner and individual. Since every child is unique and constantly developing, we tailor our instruction to students' current strengths, challenges, and overall profile as we develop their confidence and competence.
