Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs


Learning support offered

A dedicated psychologist plays a pivotal role by visiting the school weekly, offering expertise to address any emerging needs. This regular presence allows for the timely identification of challenges and the implementation of tailored strategies to support each child. Moreover, staff actively observe classrooms, closely studying behavior to ensure a thorough understanding of each student's unique requirements. This proactive approach enables the school to make necessary adjustments to the learning environment, ensuring it remains inclusive and supportive. When specific cases demand additional assistance, the school has the flexibility to place extra specialists directly within the classroom setting (families cover any associated costs).

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

Being a Montessori school, it is very easy to support these students because there are no limits to learning, the environment is rich in materials and it encourages self-directed exploration. This approach fosters a holistic development that allows gifted students to delve deeply into their areas of interest, providing them with the freedom to learn at their own pace and explore a diverse range of subjects. The emphasis on hands-on activities and collaborative learning further enhances their intellectual curiosity, creativity, and critical thinking skills. In a Montessori school, the individualized attention and flexible curriculum empower gifted students to reach their full potential while nurturing a love for learning that extends beyond traditional boundaries.
