Our Focus:
To promote academic growth and independence through evidence-based practices and a supportive and collaborative environment.

Key Program Objectives:

  • Small Class Size
    • 12 to 1 ratio of student to teacher.
    • Allows for more interactions between student and teacher and for more feedback from teacher.
  • Individualized academic programming
    • Students are assessed regularly to inform programming based on their unique academic needs
  • Focus on remedial math and literacy
    • In Numeracy, students will be placed at their skill level as opposed to actual grade level and work their way through consistent and repetitive work with guidance and assistance.
    • In Literacy, we will use a Science of Reading approach to make sure students have a systematic explicit phonics program for reading and spelling.
      • Resources will include Orton Gillingham methodology, Barton Reading System, Science of Reading methodology, F.A.S.T Learning Reading System
  • Thematic Unit approach
    • Multiple subjects are taught using one central topic.
    • It allows teachers to incorporate and combine elements of English, math, history, the arts, and other subject – all while focusing on a particular topic.
  • Social and Emotional Learning
    • Students with learning disabilities/ADHD often struggle with social interactions and emotional regulation. Students will be lead through a program that will help students develop social-emotional skills.
