● Through evidence-based, individualized education, students maximize their potential.

● We remediate the student’s areas of need while also providing access to the core curriculum.

● We can accomplish more through our model of small classes with a low teacher-student ratio.

● Teachers are experienced and trained in advanced techniques to deliver the highest quality of instruction.
