Our Mission

Walbridge School's mission is to provide an individualized educational program in a small school environment where students more fully realize their academic, emotional, and social learning potential.

 

 
 

Who Goes to Walbridge?

Each student learns differently, so we have designed our educational program to support the learning strengths and meet the challenges of each child. Walbridge is for a small niche of students that have an average or above average IQ and yet struggle with learning due to a specific learning disability or another barrier. Many common challenges for our students are ADHD, dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, dyspraxia, auditory processing, executive function skills, and NLD/NVLD. These students have all found a home and an effective learning environment in our school. Walbridge teachers are specially trained and focused on supporting students with these needs.

Our teachers are not trained nor specifically focused on supporting the specialized needs of students that struggle in school due to emotional/behavioral needs, autism, or cognitive delays.
