Student Profile:Students at RLA appreciate working with teachers who really care about them and work hard to understand how they learn best. They may not have had great success in traditional school settings but thrive in personal areas of interest or when they are surrounded by a warm and accepting community.
Note about Learning Differences:The staff at RLA have extensive experience teaching and parenting students with learning differences including ASD, NLD, ADD/ADHD, Executive Function, Dyslexia, and other specific language-based LDs. At RLA we focus academic work around high-interest and high-engagement topics and projects. We focus on student strengths over defining deficits.
