Walbridge School educates children whose experience in larger, more traditional schools has not led to success or been able to unleash their true potential.
Our vision is to provide an individualized instructional program in a small environment where children who learn differently can be successful.
Walbridge School offers an alternative full day elementary through high school program emphasizing multi-sensory teaching and individualization in order to better meet each student's needs.
Specialized and personalized instruction is geared to children with ADHD;, disabilities such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, and processing disorders; and differences that impede or thwart a student's ability to thrive and reach his/her fullest potential at school.  Our specialized education program provides a stimulating, challenging, learning environment in which children are supported in their academic, social and emotional development.

Entrusting my kids to the staff at Walbridge is the best thing I could have done for them. They became kids who wanted to go to school, homework was not a chore and you could see that they were happy and feeling good about what they were able to accomplish.
