Preston Hollow Presbyterian School

The types of learning differences served by our school include reading disorder (dyslexia), auditory processing disorder, oral language disorder, written language disorder, and mathematical disability. PHPS is small by design in order to provide an individualized, research-based, multi-sensory program to remediate academic weaknesses.
