What Begins Here Changes Everything
The Odyssey School is a unique co-educational community designed to provide specialized academic programming for students with dyslexia and other language learning differences from age five through eighth grade. Every child who walks through our front door is a bright, intelligent, and capable learner, and we recognize his/her many talents and gifts. We realize that our students learn differently and need a different approach to learning.
All learning is mediated through language. Odyssey's program is delivered in a context that recognizes that every teacher at The Odyssey School is a teacher of language. Every class is an opportunity to develop and integrate skills in the areas of reading, writing, listening, and speaking.
Our program and approaches to teaching are based on the most recent research on how our students learn and thrive.
Our program is comprised of four essential components.
Specialized Instruction: Providing instruction for every student to develop the skills to learn how to learn.
Character Education: Providing character education to build integrity in every student.
Strengths and Passions: Providing rich experiences to celebrate each student's talents and interests.
Self-advocacy: Providing opportunities to develop self-awareness and the ability to set up situations to one's best ability.
