From the Head of School
Welcome to Odyssey!
We are delighted that you are interested in learning more about The Odyssey School.
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.
When I hear the children in the hallway or at the curbside in the mornings, their words about life at Odyssey speak for themselves:
I love being here! I never feel left behind.
The words from our students say it all. Come to campus and you will see Odyssey in action.
During your visit you will be given the opportunity to observe 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.
