  • Presentation equipment to accommodate students’ auditory and vision needs
  • A further expansion of our laptop fleet, with a view to providing personalized hardware and software solutions for all students

Compassionate, caring teachers

I can’t say enough positive things about the school and its teachers. They really care about the kids and really understand children with LDs and learning differences. They are compassionate, caring teachers who really go the extra mile for their students and are willing to work with parents to get our children on track so they can succeed both academically and socially. It’s not just a job to them, it’s a passion. Every school should share the same philosophy. It’s about the kids and helping them succeed in life!
