School Notes

  • Kingsbury serves 165 students with average to above average cognitive ability. Our population includes students with mild to moderate auditory and visual processing disorders, students with non-verbal learning disabilities, ADHD, visual and spatial processing disorders as well as evaluative and organizational processing disorders. We are unable to meet the needs of students with a primary diagnosis of Mental Retardation, PDD and/or Emotional Disturbance. Students progress through a curriculum of concepts and skills at their own pace in our individualized academic program. We believe that students with learning differences can be taught effectively when instructional methods and curricula are tailored to their unique learning needs.
