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 middle/secondary school or post secondary/transition programs. Others are ready for middle/secondary 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 accept 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, our secondary level graduates have attended two-year college programs while most have attended our post-secondary program (ICCS) to further their knowledge and skills in various areas of career education. Maplebrook students are diverse in other respects as well. They range in age from eleven to twenty-one, come from across the United States, and around the world. They possess talents in drama, music, and sports and interests ranging from chess to environmental issues. 
  • LD types supported: Language based disabilities, central auditory processing, dyslexia, dysgraphia, expressive and receptive language disorders, ADD/ADHD
  • School accreditations: New York State Association of Independent Schools (NYSAIS), Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools
