Oak Hall School is dedicated to supporting the academic success of all students. Through the Learning Center, our Teaching and Learning Specialists work in collaboration with faculty, support staff, and students’ families to create a supportive environment that allows students to reach their individual potential. Because the developmental, cognitive, and emotional needs of students vary as they progress through school, individual Teaching and Learning Specialists serve students in the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools to support them through the entirety of their enrollment at Oak Hall School. Faculty within the Learning Center function as a team to align procedures, develop and enact professional development experiences, and examine the effectiveness of their work.
The goals of the Oak Hall Learning Center are to:
- reduce gaps between student academic performance and potential;
- provide multi-sensory reading instruction;
- teach students strategies toward becoming independent, responsible learners;
- provide support and education for Oak Hall families;
- provide resources and learning opportunities that empower teachers and staff to further their individual professional growth.
