10 | January 25, 2018 | 22nd century media private school guide The Gow School approach allows its students to thrive with personal experience The Gow School is a collegeprep boarding and day school for students, grades 6-12, with dyslexia and similar languagebased learning disabilities. Focusing on small class sizes, 3-7 students per class, and a low 4:1 student to faculty ratio, The Gow School offers a multi-sensory approach to teaching that enables dyslexic students to thrive. The Gow community has a sense of belonging, of equality, and of connection born on common trials and shared triumph. Gow has a start fast, finish strong mentality and students typically start to see progress soon after they step foot in our classrooms. Progress typically comes quickly, soon after they invest themselves in the program. At the School’s core is a structured program designed to help students navigate the academic day and a daily schedule designed to keep students busy. Between a packed class schedule, after-school sports, study hall and Saturday classes, there is little unprogrammed time. The School is settled on a 120 acre campus which gives our students plenty of room to learn and play. Boarding school life does not always allow lots of free time, but it has plenty of room for fun. Students are so involved – playing sports, going on trips, and hanging out with each other – that they get the most out of the rich residential experience. In July, the School’s co-ed summer program is five weeks of learning and fun for ages 8-16! The Gow School Summer Program is for students who have been experiencing academic difficulties, or have been diagnosed with dyslexia or specific learning disabilities. The Summer Program runs from the end of June to early August with morning academics, afternoon fun and games and weekend adventures! The Gow School Summer Program gives students academic tools and self-confidence they can take with them wherever they go; to the classroom and beyond. By combining a structured program and environment with flexibility, individualization, and room for fun, Gow provides a rich school experience that is precisely what dyslexic students need to learn and to enjoy learning.
