Maplebrook School is a coeducational international boarding and day school for students with learning differences and/or attention deficit disorder (ADD).
Maplebrook is more than strong academics dedicated to the creation and the nurturing of academic, artistic and athletic skills; but also a school devoted to the growth and the guidance of the character of each of our students.
Experience has proven that character values such as trust, honesty, respect, citizenship, caring, fairness, faith, and responsibility contribute immensely to the future success of our students and are the backbone of our goal to "Educate the Heart".
The Responsibility Increases Self Esteem (RISE) program provides the structure and support to make this possible. Students at Maplebrook are diverse, but within a short period of time they share a common goal - to overcome their difficulties.
Our carefully crafted academic and social skills programs are designed to converge on the ability of each individual student's success.

School Notes:

  • All students with learning differences are not alike. Each has a unique and complicated pattern of strengths and weaknesses combining to form an individual learning style. Many students arrive at Maplebrook with skills too weak to allow success in a traditional high school or post secondary education. Others are ready for high school level academics but learn best in a setting recognizing their individual learning styles and strengthening their particular academic skills.This pattern of learning can affect students socially, emotionally, as well as academically. In most instances, the pattern of learning is neurologically based and is something an individual must learn to deal with in order to have a healthy, happy and successful life.

    The student body at Maplebrook arrives with a wide variety of learning patterns and leave with a defined set of skills enabling them to better participate within our complex modern society. In recent years, graduates have attended two year college programs while others have attended post secondary programs to further their knowledge and skills in various areas of career education. Still others have entered the world of work in occupations relating to teaching, food services, health care, office services and retailing.Maplebrook students are diverse in other respects as well. They range in age from eleven to twenty-one, and come from all over the United States and from several foreign countries. They possess talents in drama, music, and sports, and interests ranging from chess to environmental issues. Our student body consists of approximately the same number of boys and girls, reflective of the society as a whole. 
  • LD types supported: Language based disabilities, central auditory processing, dyslexia, dysgraphia, expressive and receptive language disorders, ADD/ADHD
