We understand that each learner has individual needs and that is why we feel strongly
that, through individualised learning programs and outcomes as well as small class sizes we are
able to provide a superlative program to help students learn about reading and writing. These

help students in their academic success, but that we create well rounded citizens, equipped with
the tools that they will need later in life to successfully understand materials they will encounter
