The program for the upper team is designed to address the educational needs of each student’s individual learning profile and IEP so that each student may reach his or her academic potential. Our program focuses on the following:
- Flexible Placement: We offer several levels within each subject to allow students to develop their learning strengths while remediating areas of need.
- Structure and Support: Students are given the strategies to achieve academic success in the acquisition, storage, or expression and demonstration of competence of content which may include word identification strategies, vocabulary acquisition, comprehension strategies, writing strategies, study skills and/or test taking.
- Engaged Learning: Lesson plans are designed to address multiple learning styles and are multi-sensory. Technology and hands-on projects enhance learning outcomes.
