  • Walbridge School educates children who cannot reach their potential in larger, more traditional classroom settings.
  • We provide a small group instructional program in a safe, supportive, and structured environment where children who learn differently 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 processing disorders, and other differences 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, challenging learning environment that supports academic, social and emotional development.

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.
