All students are given one-on-one evaluations resulting in strategies both in the classroom and when required the Resource Room to support their needs. In the classroom, the teachers use a variety of teaching approaches to ensure that all students master the curriculum. Ongoing tracking of students’ work provides feedback leading to individualized instruction, giving them confidence and the motivation to succeed.
In the Resource Room, smaller groups--usually fewer than 5 students--receive additional support in literacy--with an emphasis on decoding and comprehension--and basic mathematical skills. Support for executive function including time management and organization helps students become more independent learners. Enrichment groups support those students working above grade level.
Students are also supported with the use of technology in the classroom. Laptops and iPads are available for students at each level, and are used both to accommodate those who require assistance, and to enhance the program. A variety of digital learning programs such as Lexia, IXL, Raz Kids, and Rosetta Stone are available to all students. Our Technology Integration Aide is available to assist both teachers and students in the most effective use of new technologies in the classroom.
Our Special Education Consultant is available to meet with parents.
