Our Academics

We approximate the academic criteria of prominent mainstream schools and strive to maximize each student’s full potential in an educational setting free of undue emotional stress.

The key is not just in the methods, but the prescriptive delivery system individualized to each student, based on professional testing and diagnosis of physiologically based learning differences. Our goal is to produce, evaluate, prescribe and coordinate individualized teaching methods for each child.

McGlannan School prepares students for a successful transition into the mainstream at the appropriate time while fostering self-esteem and maximizing academic achievement.
