Cove School

  • The Cove School was established in 1947, to educate students with learning disabilities and to facilitate their return to their neighborhood schools in the shortest possible time.
  • The heart of Cove's educational philosophy is to design a program that pulls out the child's skills.
  • The school designs an individual education plan -- a specific plan of action with built-in components for evaluating and measuring progress -- for each student.
  • Even more importantly, the plan is refined by close observation and continual assessment on a day-to-day basis.
  • Students with learning disabilities are successful at Cove because they learn through their strengths rather than being hobbled by emphasis on their weaknesses.
