Professionals identify and use students’ strengths to expand knowledge and confidence.
"This school is a unique blend
of a community school and professionalism.
It all starts with the child:
“What is best for that student?"
Using the professional tools available
to this team of educators and treatment specialists,
a personalized education is built
within the context of normal classrooms.
These are typical, normal students
who have learning differences."
Dr. Mary Courtney, PhD.
Students achieve academic success, social integration and emotional confidence. We mainstream students on grade level and preparedness to learn.
At Gesher Yehuda we view each student as an individual whose interests and abilities motivate their desire to learn. Through a flexible and comprehensive interdisciplinary approach, we devise learning strategies based on students’ strengths. Our professional staff provide clearly structured, multi-sensory experiences in all subject areas. Small class settings, tailored groups and individual instruction provide opportunities in a challenging yet nurturing environment.
Age appropriate skills and Jewish heritage are emphasized. We are compliant with New York State academic requirements.
Students develop self-esteem and self-advocacy, easing their adjustment towards conventional school and social settings.
