Dartmoor School

Dartmoor School was founded by Dori Bower in 1990 to provide one-on-one, computer-integrated, and diagnostic-prescriptive instruction for students in grades 1 through twelve.
Many students experience needless frustration in school due to boredom, inadequate development of basic skills, insufficient personal attention, dissatisfaction with the social environment, scheduling conflicts, or differences in personal learning style.
Dartmoor offers a friendly, effective, and learning-rich environment to ensure each student's success.
Dartmoor advocates excellence in education.  We believe all students can learn; we teach to each student's specific learning style and modality; we provide a warm, secure, and caring environment; and we demonstrate our sincere concern for students.
