Shady Oaks' program
Individualizes for your child
Since 1973, Shady Oaks School has been helping children with learning differences. Shady Oaks School is a small school by design, dedicated to educating elementary and middle school age children (ages 7-14) who have faced challenges to academic success in their previous schooling experiences. Academically, The Shady Oaks School curriculum specializes in helping students with reading comprehension, math, science, history, cursive writing, and language arts. Shady Oaks has a student centered philosophy, addressing the individual needs of its students. Our individualized curriculum and instruction have proven to be successful interventions in teaching students with various learning differences and attention disorders. With accommodations for different learning styles and a supportive faculty, our students learn what it takes to be successful in the classroom. Students are excited about learning, become focused on their goals, and thrive with an increased self-esteem that comes from a feeling of achievement.
All Shady Oaks students enjoy weekly group guitar lessons. Learning an instrument helps with concentration, coordination, and creativity. Our other co-curricular areas are Bible, Art, and Karate. Students are excited to learn through these opportunities.
A classroom size of approximately 10 allows all of our students to move at a pace that is appropriate for them, and to have ample individual instruction time as well as time for quality evaluation of their work. They are given the opportunity to feel successful as they master topics and skills while being coached and praised along the way.
Our faculty members are trained in multisensory approaches to instruction for students with dyslexia. Teachers are available to discuss individual goals with parents throughout the year as your child progresses.
Our program is unique because it's completely based on your child's needs. We ask that you call the school director regarding placement and admissions information.
Shady Oaks considers for enrollment students who:
are age seven to fourteen
are in need of remedial help with academics in order to return to a traditional classroom and be successful
intelligence scores in the average range
may have dyslexia, processing delays, learning disabilities, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
It is important that students be diagnosed by a licensed psychologist and that the report is made available to the school so that a learning plan can be developed.
Admissions is a simple process and often includes a phone conversation, a parent tour and meeting, and a classroom visit with your child. We begin planning your child's curriculum and steps toward increased self esteem and success.
Your child's visit to the classroom will include the teacher spending time with the student in a relaxed and informal setting while observing responses, behaviors, and educational strengths and weaknesses. After meeting with the student, the teacher and school director will discuss a learning plan with the parents. Upon Acceptance at Shady Oaks, the registration fee is required along with the enrollment forms.
