Jemicy School educates bright students struggling with dyslexia or other language-based learning differences by addressing both their intellectual strengths and their learning needs.
The School utilizes creative, multisensory, and research-based programs and techniques to develop reading, writing, spelling, and organization skills; promote a love of learning; and prepare students for the intellectual and social rigors of college and life.
Our faculty is trained in teaching methods certified by the International Dyslexia Association.
Through the use and integration of these teaching techniques, Jemicy teachers are able to tailor instruction to the learning needs of each student.
In addition, technology enhances each student's native problem-solving capability.
Jemicy students learn to understand and appreciate their unique learning style and become effective self-advocates.
Jemicy School is committed to fostering mutual respect among students, parents, faculty and staff.
We expect all to be partners in establishing and maintaining an atmosphere in which every individual is valued and respected.
