The Lower School program is hands-on, multi-sensory and language intensive. While reading and language development form the core of a Center School education, all classes necessary to future success are taught including math, science, social studies, art, music and physical education. Focused on developing confident, life-long learners, Center School’s faculty employs research-based teaching techniques, small group instruction and a cooperative team approach. We also place strong emphasis on building a sense of community, setting goals and developing individual strengths and interests, all of which contribute to each student’s personal growth.
The curriculum is designed to provide students with the self-advocacy skills and strategies they need to become independent and confident learners.
