GSRP Application
Health Appraisal for Registration

Our highly-qualified teachers use the Orton Gillingham methodology and all five pillars of literacy-plus language comprehension to drive measurable gains for all students. Our programs are located within our elementary schools to give our youngest learners exposure to the elementary school setting. In addition, our preschool teachers work closely with our K-2 teachers to help students prepare for their next step, kindergarten!
