School Mission

The mission of The Swift School is to prepare children with dyslexia and related language-based learning differences to be successful in life. We will strive to accomplish this mission by teaching children specific learning strategies and skills and by identifying and fully developing their talents. To do so, we will create an environment that is exciting, challenging and supportive. Our educational philosophy is guided by our belief in the following principles: - Every child is unique and as a result; the teaching approach, timeframe, and expected outcomes must reflect their individuality. - While early diagnosis and intervention is preferred, they can occur at any age. - The optimal learning environment includes a nurturing approach, a compassionate teaching style, a small class size, and proven instuctional techniques including the Orton-Gillingham methodology. - The relationship between mind, spirit, and body requires a curriculum with an integrated approach to addressing the academic, psycological, social, and physical needs of children. - A strong community of parents, alumni, professionals, specialists, administrators, faculty and trustees will greatly contribute to our overall effectiveness. - Appropriate and relevant accreditation and certification will define our minimum standards for excellence. As a result of investing in their child's future, parents can expect their child to improve their reading abilities and comprehension, written and oral language processing, written and oral expression, reasoning, self-esteem and confidence as well as other academic, social and physical skills.
