This is my business. I'd like to submit an update.


Now celebrating its 50th Anniversary, Benchmark School is an internationally recognized leader in providing effective, individualized education for bright children in grades 1-8 who have dyslexia, ADHD, or other learning differences.

At its founding in 1970, Benchmark School was an educational pioneer in supporting children who learn differently, and it remains so today.

In five decades of helping children with learning differences, Benchmark has graduated thousands of students who have gone on to thrive educationally and professionally. Benchmark’s time-tested approach and proven successes are unparalleled.

This is the only place to get a Benchmark education: an education that provides your child with the skills to thrive academically, socially, and emotionally. This is the only place where your child can benefit from an academic foundation formed by the exclusive and holistic Benchmark Approach.

What is your teaching or educational philosophy?

The Benchmark Approach is a unique way of teaching children with dyslexia, executive functioning issues (ADHD/ADD, auditory and visual processing differences), and other language-based learning differences.

Developed and refined over decades of research and hands-on experience, the Benchmark Approach teaches children how to be critical, analytical thinkers with excellent emotional, social, and decision-making skills.

The Benchmark Approach is intentional, reflective, supportive, and teaches the whole child. Our approach meets children where they are, and creates personalized instruction for each student. We use an array of tools and strategies—honed over fifty years—to scaffold student success.

What is your mission statement?

Benchmark School is committed to helping bright students who learn differently, or have yet to reach their academic potential, develop the confidence, strategies, and knowledge to become lifelong learners, thinkers, and problem-solvers.
