“Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn.”
– Benjamin Franklin
Learning Prep students are involved throughout the school day. From the moment our teachers and counselors greet them during morning arrival, and continuing throughout their small classes and service sessions, our students experience a personalized level of attention from a staff that is well-equipped to understand and meet their needs. Student involvement is evident throughout our school, in projects, clubs, and every classroom. Our staff is equally involved in providing the right combination of accommodations and opportunities that help every student progress toward reaching personal potential.
Students at Learning Prep have complex learning profiles including dyslexia, expressive/receptive language issues, autism spectrum disorder, and social communication disorder. Our individualized language-based program allows our students to make significant gains. Our learners are taught in a safe environment, in small classes, grouped by skill level, using direct teaching methods and individualized instruction. The deep integration of services in speech, counseling, and occupational therapy provides a uniquely collaborative approach among our staff, creating a program appropriately responsive to each child's academic growth and personal achievement.
We serve about 230 students in grades 3-12, with no more than 8 students per teacher.
