“Our journey this year at The Jones-Gordon School: Hopeful. Optimistic. Excited. Amazed! Our son’s journey this year at The Jones-Gordon School: Cautiously hopeful. Encouraged. Motivated. Empowered! Learning to work with and around dyslexia, low working memory, slow processing, AD/HD, OCD and anxiety is a daunting task for any student. But for the first time in our son’s life, he feels optimistic, encouraged, excited and empowered!
Home school, private school, public school with special ed. services, private school specializing in children who learn differently – we tried ‘em all. The Jones-Gordon School is the ONLY academic provider that has been able to meet our son’s needs. After years and years of academic failure – his walls were high and the mortar thick and strong. At Jones-Gordon he felt safe. At Jones-Gordon he could decompress. At Jones-Gordon he was able to demonstrate his strengths and expose his weaknesses without humiliation. Dana and her team have the experience, knowledge, and expertise – but most of all – they have a one-of-a-kind passion, an innate sense of how kids like our son learn; and a vision of success for each and every student.
The program model is perfect with 1:1 private tutoring in the areas the student struggles in the most, proven programs and technology, small class sizes, lots of hands-on learning and creativity. That is all well and good, but the proof is in the scores. In 1 year, during 8th grade, our son doubled and even TRIPLED his academic scores across the board! He gained 4 years in math skills alone! Success breeds success. For the first time since he was a little boy, we know he is going to have the tools he needs to live a happy and fulfilling life.
What a year it has been!”
