Review for HIGHLANDS SCHOOL INC, Bel Air, MD, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a reading specialist and I have a private tutoring practice. Over the years, I have referred families of struggling readers to The Highlands Schhol. Their philosophy is to teach students the skills and stategies they need to become successful, independent learners so they can transition back to a traditional setting, usually within two to three years. The students improve their reading and other academic, study and social skills. I can see a difference in their self-esteem in a relatively short period of time. Learning becomes fun for them! After students leave The Highlands School and return to a school with traditional teaching methods, these young people continue to learn and graduate from high school and college.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I was instrumental in getting some students placed at The Highlands School.
