Highlands serves even the youngest of children who have experienced frustration in school because of dyslexia, ADHD, and language-based learning differences. We specialize in equipping these young learners with strategies that lead to success and most importantly allow them to regain their confidence. Early detection and intervention are vital. The sooner you can begin a new direction in your child’s education, the more success he/she will have.
In our Lower School, classes have a maximum of 12 students, with one teacher and one teaching assistant. The students receive daily classroom instruction in Mind That’s Mine, Science, Social Studies, and Social Confidence, weekly instruction in Art and Music, and Physical Education three times per week. Our mixed grade classrooms utilize national and Maryland curriculum standards, with instruction focused on learning the subject as much as learning how to learn.
