School Description:

Founded in 1970, The de Paul School is a nationally-acclaimed K-8 school for bright students who learn differently.  Our mission is to teach students with specific learning differences how to learn, how to become independent, and how to succeed. We  offer an elementary school and a middle school, distinguished by caring teachers who average nearly 18 years of instructional experience.  Small class sizes, research-based curriculum, and a calm and friendly environment characterize our school.  Our students enjoy a diverse course of study: reading and language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, physical education, and humanities.  The humanities program features classwork in visual arts, music appreciation, sculpture, performance arts/theater, and much more.  Students also receive instruction in "personal and social success"... a de Paul-created course which builds organizational, study, and social skills while involving our students and teachers in team-selected community service activities.  Students have as-needed access to technology, as de Paul features seven computer labs within a wireless school network.   A rich assortment of extracurricular offerings delights our students, such as theatre club, student council, knitting club, quick recall club, and robotics.  The de Paul Huskies compete against local schools in field hockey, basketball, volleyball, swimming, golf, cross country, and tennis.  We offer an Extended Day program during the school year.  Our four-week summer program provides small group morning instruction (reading, language arts, and math) and also features an afternoon "fun camp" session daily.  The de Paul School... we help students learn what success feels like!  We welcome your phone call or email so we can schedule a personal tour for you and your child.
