The Fletcher School, named for one of its founders, Mac Fletcher, is a kindergarten through 12th grade college preparatory school offering intense remediation in academic subjects as well as opportunities to learn strategies for compensating. Students must have an LD and/or ADHD diagnosis, documentation of average or above average IQ, and evidence that emotional or behavioral issues are not the primary concern. Specific learning disabilities include diagnoses such as disorders in reading, written expression or math, dyslexia, dysgraphia, and language processing deficits.
The Fletcher School program offers a student to teacher ratio of six to one (6:1) and is based on the principles of the Orton-Gillingham approach to teaching reading, writing, spelling, math, and all subject areas as part of a total language system. Our instruction is sequential, cumulative, and repetitious in order to achieve mastery and ensure success for the student.
The Fletcher School is a 501(c)3 non-profit governed by a volunteer Board of Trustees which includes current and former parents, professionals and community members.
