- Jemicy School educates bright students struggling with dyslexia or other language-based learning differences by addressing both their intellectual strengths and their learning needs.
- The School utilizes creative, multisensory, and research-based programs and techniques to develop reading, writing, spelling, and organization skills; promote a love of learning; and prepare students for the intellectual and social rigors of college and life.
- Our faculty is trained in teaching methods certified by the International Dyslexia Association.
- Through the use and integration of these teaching techniques, Jemicy teachers are able to tailor instruction to the learning needs of each student.
- In addition, technology enhances each student's native problem-solving capability. Jemicy students learn to understand and appreciate their unique learning style and become effective self-advocates.
- Jemicy School is committed to fostering mutual respect among students, parents, faculty and staff.
- We expect all to be partners in establishing and maintaining an atmosphere in which every individual is valued and respected.
