The Axon School

The Axon School serves students who benefit from a small class size and students with language-based learning differences.
In a community that nurtures mutual respect and compassion, we cultivate the academic potential of each child through multimodal, differentiated instruction.
By teaching learning strategies, self advocacy skills, and social competence, The Axon School prepares students for the next level of education.
We believe that the key to academic, social and emotional growth is to recognize the whole child: who they are and how they learn.
Our teachers develop specific strategies for learning and personal achievement by zeroing in on each child's unique abilities and learning style.

School Notes

The Axon School supports students in grades 1-8 who benefit from smaller class sizes and personalized instruction in a respectful and engaging community.
  • We ensure our students who do have learning challenges are felt included in our community and their abilities are nurtured using executive function strategies.
  • Axon students are eager to learn and are socially and behaviorally healthy. Students arrive to The Axon School often feeling discouraged and within a few short weeks their confidence and self-esteem are visibly gaining strength as they begin to experience their own potential.
  • Our students quickly learn that they have a voice and how best to use it to their advantage.
  • While we are a school that can serves children with mild learning differences, to guarantee the individual attention that each student will receive, The Axon School cannot support children with behavioral issues. 
Our curriculum include: Applied Mathematics and Science, Communication skills, Humanities, Penmanship, English with focus on phonics, World Languages, Technology, Movement and Mindfulness sessions
