From the Head of School

Welcome to Odyssey!

Martha Sweeney



We are delighted that you are interested in learning more about The Odyssey School. The 2023-2024 school year marks Odyssey’s 30th year of changing the lives of students with dyslexia and other language learning differences. 

Perhaps you have just recently been told that your child is dyslexic or has a language learning difference. You may be working to better identify your child's strengths and challenges, and are actively looking for a school that will deeply understand your son or daughter who thinks differently and learns differently. At Odyssey, we deliver instruction based on what the research says works. Our students meet success by being taught differently.

Learning differences are real. They can make it difficult for our students to thrive in traditional school settings. Our students learn best in an environment that feeds their strengths, helps them to discover their passions and facilitates the development of the skills and strategies that breed success in the academic arena and beyond. Proven methodologies taught in small classes focus on reading, writing, math, and executive function skills.

Our teachers are our greatest resource and they bring years of passion and experience to their work with our students. Their expertise is refined each year by the opportunities they have to learn from experts in the field of learning differences here on campus.

We are always moved by the enthusiasm and joyfulness of our students.

I love being here! I never feel left behind.

The words from our students say it all. Please reach out to us so you can learn more about what the Odyssey experience can do for your child.

You will be given the opportunity to understand  how we deliver specialized instruction, offer character education, provide opportunities for students to grow their passions and interests and help students to facilitate the development of self-advocacy skills in everyday life.
