School Notes

  • Students are given extensive assessment to find out what they can do well, not so well and not at all. Students practice everything until they are fluent. The goal is to be able to perform quickly, effortlessly and accurately. Teachers continually adjust their instruction based upon performance data until the students are successful. No one falls through the cracks.
  • Students are very successful in school, sometimes for the first time in their lives.
  • We tell families that their children will gain at least two grade levels in their skill of greatest deficit or their money back. We have returned less than 2 percent of tuition in 35 years.
  • Students learn in an atmosphere of positive reinforcement. Teachers give their students lots of praise.
