Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs

Our Learning Center model is based on a philosophy that all students have unique abilities and interests; and every one of these should be valued. We believe inclusion is the best practice. Learners respond best to child centered, developmentally appropriate programs designed to develop their strengths and provide for their individual needs through differentiated instruction. Our educational community serves students with a wide range of exceptionalities that can be supported within our inclusionary model. Multi-tiered levels of support are provided within each building level in order to meet the variety of needs within our student population as students work towards meeting the goals of their Individualized Education Plans.

Learning support offered

We have professionals with expertise in a wide range of specializations, including: learning disabilities; dyslexia; attention deficits; speech, language & communication needs; developmental delays; genetic disorders; sensory integration; fine and gross motor skills; autism spectrum disorders; and English & Spanish language acquisition. The function of the Learning Center is to foster growth and self-esteem, as well as to teach strategies that lead to self-advocacy and independence.This is all made possible by our Inclusion Teacher Program and our Co-teaching Model.

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

We are committed to an educational program that recognizes the special value and needs of the individual student. Providing programs and materials for gifted students who perform or show the potential for performing at a high level of accomplishment when compared to others of the same age, experience, or environment is an integral part of this commitment. We believe that gifted students need a continuum of learning experiences that leads to the development of advanced level products and/or demonstrations.
