Student Support Services

Learning Lab

We provide academic intervention in the form of observational and academic assessments, math enrichment and remediation, and small group literacy instruction for our students as well as instructional coaching for our faculty with an emphasis on differentiated instruction. This support is available to all students, as needed, in grades K-2. For students in grades 3-8, we provide these interventions, as well as reasonable accommodations, for those students with a documented need. This is generally achieved through a neuropsychological evaluation. We provide referrals and summarize these outside educational evaluations. We work collaboratively with teachers, parents, and administrators to create a plan that allows our students to reach their full potential.

Embedded in student support is social emotional learning (SEL). Skills like self-awareness, self-management, and responsible decision making are central to the success of all students and great care is taken to further strengthen these skills in each of the students we support. Additionally, our classroom teachers employ innovative teaching practices like project-based learning, service learning, and design thinking to differentiate their instruction and to foster a growth mindset in our students. This integrated approach motivates our students to take ownership of their learning while solving real-world problems. These authentic connections give meaning to academic content and drive student achievement.

Counseling & Guidance

Experiencing academic, social, emotional, and behavioral difficulties is a normal part of growth and development for a child. Our Counselor is available to meet with students to provide individual and small group, short-term counseling in order to problem solve and discuss issues related to friendships, behavioral concerns in the classroom, academic concerns, and other common childhood or teen developmental challenges. Our counselor works collaboratively with teachers, parents, administrators, and community partners to create a positive action plan for students.
