The academic curriculum at King's-Edgehill is intellectually challenging and our students are capable, high functioning young people. There are many reasons, however, why bright, determined youth sometimes find the demands of schooling overwhelming. Sometimes the tasks of reading, spelling and writing are complicated by learning difficulties such as Dyslexia. Some of our students have experienced difficulty with focusing in the classroom and may have been identified as having Attention Deficit Disorder. Some students have specific problems with organizational tasks and need support to learn to use a planner, take good notes, keep supplies together, study for tests and exams and learn from feedback and reflection.
At King's-Edgehill, we believe that every student deserves an equal opportunity to succeed. Learning support and accommodation for individual needs is provided in all classrooms by all teachers. Providing this support encourages our students to become accountable, responsible, knowledgeable advocates for their personal success.
