Our students blame themselves for not being able to read, but we assure them THEY are not the problem.

Today's curriculum is not doing its job. That's why we use a proven instructional approach that allows us to teach all people to read.

We also know that people with dyslexia are not able to learn how to read, write, and spell in large classes. To combat this, we keep 1:4 teacher to student ratios.

Lastly, people who have dyslexia need to be in environments in which they are:

  • Allowed to discover new learning

  • Allowed to fully experience learning

  • Listened to while making connectections, asking questions, etc

We take children from feeling "dumb," to KNOWING they're smart. 

A school created to give students confidence to learn without failure.

We have a specific mission: empower children by teaching them to read, write and spell. These are the foundations of learning.

Upon mastering these skills, children are set-up for a life full of learning.

Learning to read is the difference between high and low self-esteem.

When students come to us, they are shattered. When they leave, they are confident and prepared to take on the world.
