Throughout their journey, students may need varying kinds of support in order to succeed academically, socially, and emotionally. Every student has a support team that works together to regularly monitor progress and offer specialized support when needed.
Our Student Support Services team is comprised of specialists attuned to the developmental needs of students. Offering layers of academic, social, and emotional support, the support team helps students work independently, collaboratively, and confidently.
At every grade level, faculty are sensitive to the variety of learning styles and the potential for learning differences that may require support beyond the classroom. To determine the need for additional support, the principal, assistant principal, grade-level dean, advisor, counselor, learning specialist, alongside the child's parents/guardians, collaborate to identify specific skills and strategies that will help the child meet learning standards and expectations.
The goal of learning support services is to quickly help a student with relatively minor learning issues to master the skills needed to function independently. Students with more involved difficulties may be referred for an outside evaluation and/or more intensive remediation.
