The Gow School
October 28, 2011

My son is attending The Gow School for a second year. He is a Junior. His reading level went up 3 grade levels last year. His confidence is very high and he works very hard to learn as much as he can. This is a long way from where he was before Gow. Prior to Gow, he had given up at school and thought he was "dumb" because he learned differently.

He is active and confident socially and in sports and has many, many friends. Gow has been fabulous at helping to develop him into a well rounded, positive person that will make the world a better place.

Our son was diagnosed with dyslexia when he was ~7 years old. After trying countless tutors and programs, we finally found out about Gow and sent him for the 2010 summer program. It was a great fit! He had a very ggod time and learned a lot of strategies that will help him for the rest of his life. He is attending Gow full time. The work is hard and he misses his friends at home, but he knows Gow will help him improve his reading abilities forever.
