Learning Prep School is an innovative educational and therapeutic milieu for students with language and learning disabilities.
Understanding that language skills are the basis for all learning, LPS's unique curriculum integrates the teaching of language skills in all subjects.
Serving students from communities throughout New England, LPS is the only school specifically designed for language-impaired students within the region.
Our record of accomplishment is also unique.
While most language-impaired students fare poorly in the public schools, many students who enter LPS early in their academic lives are able to return to the public school setting.
Having learned the necessary compensatory strategies, these students often complete high school and find employment.
Older students who enter LPS, later graduate, choosing to go on to higher education or work.
The Learning Prep School (LPS) has been providing language and learning-disabled students with such an educational milieu since 1970.
