CURRICULUM

A multi-sensory approach to learning is the key to success. Our top priority is for students to be successful and increase self-esteem and confidence. The low student-to-teacher ratio fosters a positive learning experience throughout the day. We provide opportunities for students to develop social skills along with academics. Some strategies and materials we use include, but are not limited to:
