Accommodating Diverse Learning Methods at The Pelican School

At The Pelican School, we tailor our educational approach to meet the unique needs of each child. Our small class sizes and flexible curriculum allow us to provide personalized attention and adapt to diverse learning methods. Integrating nature and art, we create a nurturing environment that enhances learning and supports emotional well-being, ensuring every child not only learns but thrives. Discover how our commitment to individualized education makes The Pelican School the ideal choice for children who benefit from an intentional and beautiful educational setting.

At The Pelican School, we understand that every child’s educational journey is unique to their personality and aptitudes. We believe in creating an environment that adapts to individual challenges and emphasizes areas of giftedness. Here’s how The Pelican School stands out in accommodating diverse learners.

Personalized Attention in Small Classes

Our micro-school setting, with a cap of just 10 students per class, allows for a highly personalized approach to education. This small class size ensures that every student receives the support they need, which is particularly beneficial for children with learning disabilities and giftedness. Students can learn at their own pace in a setting that values their individual learning style over a one-size-fits-all curriculum.

Specialized Expertise in Dyslexia

Cassandra Brown, the heart and drive behind The Pelican School, is not only a dedicated educator but also a certified Orton-Gillingham tutor with over five years of experience tutoring students with dyslexia. Her expertise allows us to offer specialized support for students with language arts-based learning disabilities, employing techniques that enhance reading, writing, and comprehension skills.

Incorporating Nature and Art

Cassandra’s background in art and psychology deeply influences our teaching methods and learning environment. At The Pelican School, we integrate the beauty of nature and the arts into our curriculum, which is especially beneficial for students who thrive in expressive and sensory-rich settings. This approach not only enhances learning but also supports emotional and psychological well-being.

Commitment to Inclusive Education

We are committed to inclusivity and believe that all children deserve a supportive and understanding educational environment. While we are not equipped to offer services for students requiring 1:1 support, many students who would fall under a special needs category (twice exceptional, diagnosed or undiagnosed learning disabilities, etc.) may prove excellent candidates for The Pelican School. Our policy for applicants with such learning differences is handled on a case-by-case basis, ensuring that we tailor our resources and strategies to meet the specific requirements of each child.

At The Pelican School, we strive to transform children’s experience of formal education into one that celebrates and supports their unique educational journey. By focusing on personalized education, specialized support, and a nurturing environment, we aim to empower students to reach their full potential. For families looking for a school that values individuality and caters adeptly to learning differences, The Pelican School could be your ideal choice.
