School Notes:

Students with learning differences are unique learners. While their intelligence levels are average to above average, they process information in a way that is different from what is expected in a conventional school environment. In many traditional public and private school classrooms where the majority of learners do well, students with unique learning styles don’t quite fit and often get unfairly labeled as “disabled” or even worse. Because students with learning differences inherently learn outside-the-box, they are often misunderstood. These students have the ability to learn as well as anyone else; they simply learn differently. When they are educated in an environment that honors their individual learning styles, they succeed—even excel—and go on to experience achievement in schools, colleges and careers. Today, thousands of our children—born with the intelligence and talent to build great bridges, create new art, triumph in the business world and contribute greatly to our society—are struggling academically. But given the opportunity to learn and grow in a unique environment, these students are able to unlock their potential and succeed. At Lawrence School, we understand the unique needs –academic, social and emotional—of students with learning differences and attention deficits. Our specialized programs and methods are designed to help these students build confidence, advocate for themselves, and reach their full potential. There are over 300 schools like Lawrence across the country—but only one in northeast Ohio. If it is time for you and your child to discover success both inside and outside the classroom, consider learning at Lawrence.
