*We provide Individualized Teaching
Teaching is personal and students at Tancook Bell develop positive and close relationship with their teachers. We encourage diverse thinking and learning/teaching styles in both our students and our teaching staff.
For all of our students, we provide an internal I.E.P (Individual Education Program) that corresponds with the parents input and /or psycho-educational assessment from local psychologists.
Challenges for our students include:
Autism, Aspergers, ADHD, anxiety issues, eating disorders, dyslexia, low self-esteem, non-verbal learning disability, poor social skills, lack of school credits, etc.
We focus on WHERE the student is now and HOW they learn in order to guide them to their future destination.
* Local psychologists, neighbouring secondary schools and social service agencies have referred their clients to us with much success.
