School Notes

  • BeingMore Than A Schoolmeans providing a nurturing environment that feels more like a second home. For school-aged children, school and home are the most prevalent aspects of their worlds. If life at school is a struggle, it ultimately affects life at home. We provide a place where students can build on their strengths so they can feel strong enough to take on challenges. With this in mind, we understand there are many factors that add to a child`s success at school.
  • At WEDS, the foundation of our program highlights that all behavior has meaning, and how you feel impacts how you learn. With a multidisciplinary team that includes Master Level Teachers, Counselors, Speech and Language Pathologists, and OccupationalTherapists,we truly support the whole child. Here at WEDS, we believe relationships matter and having positive relationships with adults and peers at school make all the difference when it comes to learning.
  • Collaboration is at the root of everything we do.In our building, collaboration is happening all day, every day. But it doesn`t end there.We bring together parents, faculty, and students to address any issues that come up. The lines of communication are always wide open and we wouldn`t have it any other way.
