School Notes:

    • Strategy-based - we teach students how to learn.
    • Transitional - our students learn to be effective, efficient, successful learners, prepared to move on to more "traditional" environments.
    • Analytical teaching methodologies - we determine how each individual learns best, then teach him/her to use that learning style to their advantage.
    • Self-advocacy - our students learn to be responsible for their learning, to understand their strengths as well as their differences.
    • We teach Language, Learning, Memory, Social Skills, Self-Concept strategies.
    • We maintain a balanced female/male population.
