Different Learning Styles.
Same Dedicated Support.
When children learn in a way that works for them, they develop a lifelong love of learning. Since not all students learn in the same way, there is a need for creating a variety of teaching methods to best reach each student. Schechter understands this concept, and has built a strong differentiated learning support program to best accommodate individual student needs.
Led by Nanci Caplan, Director of Student Support Services, 12 faculty and staff members are dedicated to identifying and meeting the needs of students at the Sager School. Differentiated learning takes place across both Judaic and general studies with six special education teachers. Teachers work with students new to English, and those new to Hebrew, and our K-4 school psychologist and grades 5- 8 social worker round out the team to ensure their emotional needs are met as well. It doesn’t end there. The entire faculty is involved, and writes a differentiated learning goal as part of their professional development, which turns into an overall school goal.
