Integrating Academics and Technology for Learning Differences Education in Princeton, NJ

 

033The Laurel School of Princeton’s campus is located in Princeton, NJ. With an academic curriculum that meets the standards of the New Jersey Core Content, our highly trained teachers specialize in educating children with learning differences in grades 1-8. We integrate technology and multisensory education in small classroom environments to meet your child’s needs.

All About Our Academics

Our core curriculum includes the language arts, mathematics, science, and the arts.

The language arts component utilizes the Orton-Gillingham and Wilson Reading programs every day to help children improve their reading comprehension and writing. In addition, we use other multisensory programs to keep students engaged and learning.

The math curriculum is primarily comprised of the five areas recommended by the National Council for Teachers of Mathematics. They include: Numerical Operations, Geometry and Measurement, Patterns & Algebra, Data Analysis, and Probability & Mathematical Processes. Similar to the language arts program, we use a multisensory approach.

The science program at The Laurel School of Princeton is in alignment with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). This approach focuses on the three dimensions of crosscutting concepts, science and engineering practices, and disciplinary core ideas.

The arts curriculum takes a comprehensive approach to teaching children about different materials and media, as well as art history. We seek to help our students reach their artistic potential with hands-on learning.

Education in the Digital Age

At The Laurel School of Princeton, students have access to Apple computers, iPads, Kindles, and iPods. Each student has a laptop in order to take full advantage of assistive technology programs used in the classroom. The use of assistive technology programs, such as Kurzweil and Inspiration Software, allows students to have access to information that is cognitively appropriate but may not be easily decoded. GarageBand, iMovie, and other art and music programs encourage students to express their artistic and musical talents.
