Mission: The Wolf School is dedicated to providing an educational environment where children with learning differences become successful, secure learners. Our intensive and integrated model enables children to discover and utilize their strengths and talents by meeting their academic, social and emotional needs.
Programs: A private school for children with learning differences in grades k through 8. The school follows the standards of core grade-level skills for languages, arts, math, social studies and science. The school's team of teachers, occupational therapists and speech language pathologists work with each student to develop individualized strategies according to his or her needs. The curriculum encompasses a rigorous blend of academic subjects and intensive therapeutic support. The teacher to student ratio is no more than 1:3 which allows for small instructional groups. The teaching model addresses three major learning challenges: language processing and production, sensory regulation and socially effective communication.
after-school programs - the wolf school has afterschool programs for lower and middle school students. The middle school students participate in a homework club. This is designated time for students to work on homework assignments using stategies that are successful and can be carried over and used at home. This program meets one day per week. The middle school students can also participate in a creative arts program, a music program, and a sports intramural program. Each program also meets one day per week. The lower school students have a "wolf pack" program which is designed to enhance social skill development in a therapeutic group environment. The program runs one day per week.
summer program - the wolf school faculty (teachers and therapists) offered 1:1 tutorial sessions for academics, occupational therapy and speech and language services (grade k-8). In addition, the wolf school offered three speciality programs focused on incorporating social thinking with music, art or fitness.
As a parent of a child who attends the wolf school I can tell you first hand this school is as amazing as you probably already heard. My daughter has a complex neurological disorder known as developmental dyspraxia. She was basically written off by our public school system. They had very little hope for her and sat me down on day to tell me they would like to make her a life skilled child. At this point I knew they had given up on her. As her mother I knew there was great knowledge in her brain and they just didn't know how to reach her or even go about trying to. My daughter has only been at the wolf school for about 4 months and already have noticed huge goals she has been reaching. She can read sight words , write her numbers, and loves to go to school. My child now has self confidence that allows her to feel good about herself to succeed. Most of all she has found a love for school and learning. You will never feel alone at this school. The parents and facility are all loving , caring, and understanding. We are all in this together. The children are all very nice and accepting of one another. Take the time and go visit the school it truly life changing. It has become the light at the end of my tunnel!
