Our Learning Specialist supports students, teachers, and parents to help ensure that individual student needs are met. Our Student Support Team, comprised of several faculty members, the Learning Specialist, and the Lower School Division Head, meets regularly to talk about individual student progress and to brainstorm ideas to maximize learning, including differentiation, enrichment, or additional support that will allow the greatest success.
The Learning Specialist serves as the liaison between the school and any outside resources that might be needed to support a student’s growth and development. The Learning Specialist works with parents, teachers, and outside professionals to make reasonable accommodations for diagnosed learning differences.
The school also employs an Emotional Support Counselor who is available to help with individual, peer, or family challenges. The counselor also serves as a resource for families who may may need additional mental health services outside of school.
