Who Are Lawrence Learners?
Lawrence School serves students with IEPs and/or diagnoses, such as: dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, ADHD, and executive function difficulties. Our program is designed for students who have average and above intelligence, who simply process information differently than what is expected in a traditional classroom.
We understand the distinct academic, social, and emotional needs of our students and celebrate their individual learning styles. Our program focuses on meeting students where they are, understanding their strengths and challenges, and providing a safe, positive learning environment where they can experience success.
We offer rolling admission, which means we have no application deadline. Qualifying students are admitted throughout the school year, as space allows.
When students are faced with academic frustration in a traditional classroom, they often develop behaviors and strategies to avoid situations for which they don’t have the skills to succeed. Some students with learning differences experience a loss of self-esteem that can drive behavioral issues. We find this behavior can oftentimes be reversed when that student is in an environment where they CAN succeed! Our program, however, is not designed to serve students with persistent or severe behavior problems.
Lawrence School welcomes students, staff, and Board members of all ages, races, colors, religions, nationalities, genders, sexual orientation, gender identity, handicap, national or ethnic origins to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities made available at the School. The School does not discriminate in administration of its education or admission policies, hiring practices, tuition assistance or other school administered programs.
