Dedicated staff/programs for students with special learning needs


Learning support offered

At our inclusive school, if a child is determined to possess support learning needs, whether by parents submitting their developmental pediatrician's diagnoses or by our teaching team's observations, we employ inclusion support specialists to provide push-in support to the homeroom teacher within the classroom setting. Our specialized program also employs in-house speech language pathologists, occupational therapists, and physical therapists, who will recommend a twice-weekly (or more, if necessary) schedule to pull-out students for their therapy sessions within the school setting.

The school supports gifted, able and talented students

While we have not registered 'gifted' students at school, we nurture and provide certain levels of support to all of our students, based on validated agreements reached during regular conferences between parents and the child's teaching team. Since we are a micro inclusive school, our small size allows us to meet each and every child's needs at close range.

Student access to education psychologist


Entry evaluation for students

Not an entrance exam, but merely a Skills Evaluation Test, which will provide our teaching team a general overview of the child's grade level skills, and thus be able to modify as needed. As a micro inclusive school, our small size allows us this flexibility.
