About the School: The Banyan School was founded in 1993 to educate elementary, middle school and high school students with learning differences. The curriculum reflects the needs of every student, the beliefs of the staff and the values of the entire Banyan School community. Students at Banyan School learn that education is the process of living. They discover that their lives are connected to a larger world, a world that requires a relationship to community. Families, administrators and staff members work together to develop programs that educate the whole child. Students are presented with multi-sensory opportunities that build confidence and address learning challenges.  In addition, a strong social skills program provides for the emotional and psychological needs of all students.

Mission: Cambridge School was founded on the belief that every child deserves the opportunity for an excellent education. We are committed to providing that education in a warm, nurturing and individualized learning environment for children who learn differently. Our goal is to prepare each student with the necessary academic, personal and social skills to succeed.

About the School: Cambridge School is an independent special education school for children who have been diagnosed with primary language-based learning disabilities, such as dyslexia, ADHD, and auditory processing disorder, among others. However, we are not like other dyslexia schools or learning disability schools; we believe that our students have learning differences, not learning disabilities. Cambridge School focuses on providing the most positive educational opportunities for our students by catering to each student's strengths and individual learning style. Students with language-based learning differences require individualized attention, and as a special needs school, Cambridge School offers a curriculum that is specifically designed while supporting and encouraging the pursuits in which they excel.

Mission: The mission of The Lewis School is to educate and to empower bright young people whose scholastic achievement and human potential are significantly hindered by language-based learning issues. It is to provide these promising students with the most exceptional multisensory educational opportunity possible within a school community specifically attuned and responsive to each student's academic needs, and to the nurture of the whole person. It is to explore and prosper each student's gifts 

About the School: The Lewis School and Clinic for Educational Therapy was founded in 1973 as a small tutorial school and educational diagnostic facility at a time when many educators flatly denied the existence of Dyslexia or failed to recognize the potential among bright students whose diverse learning styles were unlike those of the majority of their peers. The Lewis School was created to retrieve and develop the potential of the student who has creative and academic promise, but who has been underserved in his/her routine mainstream education.
