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


For over 30 years, Center School has successfully served children who are diagnosed with dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, ADHD, auditory processing disorder, and executive function disorder. Center School students are bright, capable students with personal strengths and unlimited potential. Our success lies in our approach. Our students learn differently, and we discover how they learn and then teach in a way best suited for their individual needs.

Center School’s curriculum is designed to meet the individual needs of students. Class sizes are small in order to deliver more individualized and personalized instruction. Students receive explicit instruction in academic, organizational, and study skills to provide them with the strategies they need to become independent and confident learners. The majority of our reading teachers are reading specialists and all are certified in Wilson Reading.

Our admissions team is available to provide virtual or individual meetings at a time that is convenient for you. We look forward to beginning this journey with you and ensuring that this process is a meaningful one for you, your child, and your family.

What is your teaching or educational philosophy?

It is our belief that every student is capable of academic, social and emotional growth, and we are dedicated to designing instructional programs which foster each child’s optimal development through the use of small group instruction. This involves ongoing diagnosis of the strengths and needs of each student, appropriate instructional placement and a team approach to working with the students.

Our objective is to retain the excellence of an established program while integrating the best of current research and practice. We work to enhance the academic, social and emotional coping skills needed for future success.

What is your mission statement?

Center School’s mission is to provide children who learn differently with a personalized education to realize their potential and reshape the way they view themselves and their future.
