http://www.sandhillsschool.org The mission of Sandhills School is to provide a successful learning environment for students who learn differently and who benefit from evidence-based, multisensory instruction. Sandhills School is a resource to the community for information about language-based learning differences and ADD/ADHD.
Sandhills School is a vibrant, independent school for bright students in the first through ninth grades. Sandhills School has been in operation for over thirty years, providing an established, proven program through quality and stability. Intelligent students seek Sandhills to overcome their difficulties with reading, writing and math. When coming to us, our students’ achievement level is not reaching their full potential. Sandhills uses the Orton-Gillingham approach, which is a brain-based, research proven instructional program for intelligent youngsters struggling to acquire reading and writing skills. Grades 1st– 9th
http://www.camperdown.org Camperdown Academy is a unique school, designed to meet the needs of the student with dyslexia. Individualized Orton-Gillingham instruction, multi-sensory classroom teaching, and attention to developing the talents of the child with dyslexia form our primary goals in educating our students.
While language instruction forms the core of the education of a Camperdown student, and Orton-Gillingham remediation, simply the best education a student with dyslexia can receive, remains pure and unaltered, it is only one of many facets in a student’s education here. Several of our faculty are national experts in the field of dyslexia. We present teaching strategies across the country. Grades K-12th
http://www.glenforest.org/about.html/ Glenforest School is a K-12 private, non-profit, day-school for students of average to above-average intelligence with learning differences and focusing issues. Some of our students come to Glenforest and stay with us for a couple of years, receiving reading and math remediation, regaining confidence, and learning important strategies to help them return to their public school. Other students find that they enjoy the small class size and family-like atmosphere here and end up staying and graduating form Glenforest and going on to college. Our college preparatory and general diploma programs are fully accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
Because our students learn differently, we teach them differently. Many of our students are dyslexic and struggle with the written word. At Glenforest, we have adopted PROJECT READ, a multi-sensory, sequential, direct concept method of teaching reading, writing, and spelling that is derived from the Orton Gillingham approach. The students learn at their own pace in classes of no more than three. Some of our students struggle with math. Our approach is “hands-on,” in small classes, with one-on-one after school tutoring available, if needed.
http://www.chesterbrookacademy.com At our schools, you can trust that your child will be treated as an individual learner and encouraged to appreciate the joy of learning. We recognize that every child needs support, challenges and encouragement within a stimulating educational environment. Our teachers actively engage your child in learning within an atmosphere that is safe and nurturing.
Our elementary schools and middle schools provide a challenging and robust curriculum, innovative instruction led by dedicated, well-trained teachers, and a vibrant school community that values each individual’s contribution. Instruction is tailored to the developmental stage of each grade and to the learning styles of each child. In grades K-3, we give students a thorough foundation in the core academic skills. In grades 4-8 we build on those skills so that students learn to apply their knowledge outside the four walls of the classroom. By emphasizing core academics as well as leadership skills, interpersonal skills, and wellness, we prepare students to be confident, competent leaders in an ever-evolving world. Grades Prek-8th
