School Notes

  • Our one-room schoolhouse concept addresses skill levels, not grade levels. Students are taught the skills they need to overcome their learning challenges. Using explicit systematic evidence-based instruction and curriculum, particularly a structured literacy approach, students can make significant gains in a relatively short time.  Meeting the needs of the whole child includes social and emotional learning. Following the latest research in neuroscience and brain-based learning,   we build foundations for learning to make lifelong changes.
