The Banyan School was founded in 1993 to educate elementary, middle school and high school students with learning disabilities by identifying individual strengths and abilities, continuously monitoring individual progress and adapting the curriculum to meet each student's changing educational needs.
Recognizing that each student entering Banyan School will have his or her own learning style, the students are taught compensatory strategies to ensure academic success. Next, we monitor each student's progress to be sure that a particular teaching method is appropriate. Finally, we adapt the curriculum to meet each student's changing educational needs. Classes are small with a maximum 8 to 1 student-to-teacher ratio.
Banyan School is a private, non-profit, state approved elementary, middle and high school for students with average or above average intelligence whose academic success has been compromised by a primary learning disability. While the term "learning disability" is very general, it does encompass many factors that can impact a child's education.
