ACADEMICS

 

Each student learns differently, especially one with a learning difference. That’s why all aspects of Radcliffe’s curriculum are taught in ways that incorporate the visual, auditory, kinesthetic, and tactile senses of each student, focusing on their strengths rather than their weaknesses with the purpose of teaching them how to learn using multiple senses.

 

curriculum

Our curriculum is most often described as “active learning” – which could be as simple as tossing water balloons to learn about physics concepts to rhyming sounds drawn in chalk on the playground to learn about phonetics.

 

Specific strategies include the Orton-Gillingham method for teaching reading; small group instruction (our student-to-teacher ratio is three to one); speech and language therapy; and occupational therapy.

multi-sensory

learning

technology

Radcliffe Creek encourages the use of technology from an early age. The technology curriculum was specifically designed for students at Radcliffe Creek to integrate with a student’s technology needs across the curriculum – from Language Arts to Math.

integrated support

Language skills are the foundation for academic growth and success and they impact a child’s social interactions as well. Language difficulties can affect a child’s ability to acquire reading skills, express his or her knowledge in the classroom, participate in class discussions, follow directions, remember curricular material, as well as interact with peers and adults. 

high school 

transition

When a student graduates from eighth grade at Radcliffe Creek School, they are prepared with the tools to succeed in a variety of secondary school settings. Our students go on to local public schools as well as a number of local independent schools and boarding schools across the country.
