Walbridge School

Walbridge School educates children who struggle with specific learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, and ADHD.
We provide small class sizes with a structured environment where children who need systematic, explicit instruction like Orton-Gillingham can succeed.
Walbridge School offers a full day elementary through high school program emphasizing flexible multi-sensory teaching to meet each student's learning needs.
Our specialized and personalized instruction is geared towards children with learning challenges such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, ADHD, or auditory processing disorders that get in the way of the student working towards their potential. Our program is not geared to work with children whose primary needs are emotional behavioral.
We provide a stimulating and challenging learning environment with high expectations for each student to take ownership of their learning.

Entrusting my kids to the staff at Walbridge is the best thing I could have done for them. They became kids who wanted to go to school, homework was not a chore and you could see that they were happy and feeling good about what they were able to accomplish.
