Walbridge School provides students with educational experiences that will increase the likelihood of success in school. Reaching goals of progressive academic achievement, greater independence and a stronger sense of self-worth is emphasized in the development of our educational program. Because the needs of our students differ, it is necessary to offer a number of special options for the children in a highly focused full day program.
Organization of Classes: The school is organized into multi-age groupings of students with a goal of a student teacher ratio of no more than 10:1 throughout the school day. Students attend school from 8:00 until 1:30 on Monday and from 8:00 to 3:00 Tuesday through Friday. (A before-school and an after-school program are available.) Children are assigned to learning groups on the basis of their needs, achievements, and abilities. Assignment to a single grade level based on chronological age is de-emphasized.
