The GAP School's mission is two-fold: it is for students with learning disabilities who need to retrain, refocus, and reconnect with their own learning potential so they can get back into public and charter schools, as well as, other private schools; and it offers support, foundation, and direction to our families.
The GAP School does not discriminate in any way on the basis of race, religion, or creed with respect to admissions, student privileges, facultyor scholarships.
The philosophies of The GAP School are embedded in Howard Gardner's multiple intelligence model and Dr. Mel Levine's neuro developmental construct model.
When the teaching team, students and families understand the student's strengths and challenges, the outcomes are more realistic.
Students start out with a multi-talented label instead of a learning disability label.
