Parkhill Elementary and Middle School

Parkhill School’s Elementary and Middle School program integrates the teaching of appropriate social, attention, and organization skills with the academic goals described in the Common Core Standards. Using the Universal Design for Learning philosophy, which emphasizes a multimodal approach to the presentation of material and assessment of learning, teachers reach students who may struggle with auditory processing, executive functioning, and emotional barriers to academic progress. Further, Parkhill School emphasizes the practical applications of academic content in order to increase the relevance students experience from formal education. Stressing the importance of a positive working relationship between teacher and student, Parkhill School staff function as mentors and coaches, guiding students to act in their own best interests as they prepare for a future of independence and success.
