Language Based Learning Environment
All classes are run as language-based. This means our specially-trained teachers and related service providers are applying the 7 themes of language-based learning in their small groups, using consistent instructional language. All teachers are practicing the themes: Orient, Preview & Review, Connect, Modify, Model, Routine and Multimodal.
Whole Child Approach
At Learning Prep School, we believe there's many important aspects of helping a child grow, in addition to their important academic work. That's why we have incorporated the following into our program:
Safe Learning Environment: Creating a safe environment where students feel comfortable taking learning and social risks has always been a key component to student success at Learning Prep School. LPS is committed to addressing and preventing all forms of bullying and other harmful and disruptive behavior that can impede the learning process.
Counseling: Our school-based counseling services focus on helping students further develop their social, organizational and problem-solving skills, as well as other issues related to coping with their language-based learning disability. The Counseling Department consists of licensed, masters-level clinicians who see students for weekly counseling, provide check-ins, case management, and teach Health and Student Issues classes. Frequent communication with staff, parents and outside professionals assists with individualized progress toward social emotional goals.
Student Citizenship: Character education is at the heart of our school, providing a healthy, vibrant culture that embraces our approach to advance the personal integrity of each member of the community, staff, as well as students. The core principles are embedded in a code of conduct that delineates the core values of the school. These five core values include respect, honesty, courage, compassion, and responsibility. These values are advanced through common reads, by integration throughout the educational program, and by modeling. At LPS we are dedicated to this work, to applying the same intense focus to the affective needs of our students that we bring to their cognitive needs.
