SPSG celebrates and honors the unique talents and gifts of each of our students. Our high standards and robust academic program equip all of our students with the skills to be innovative thinkers, lifelong learners, and confident communicators. The roadmap to excellence is not the same for each girl. Thus, our outstanding Learning Services Department is a resource for the entire SPSG community, integral to SPSG’s mission, and a signature program of our school.
Both the middle and upper school staff include full time learning specialists. These experienced professionals are skilled in providing assistance to students and collaborating with teachers to ensure each student’s success. The intensity of the learning specialist’s involvement may range from brief consultation with either the student or teacher to the establishment of a Formal Education Plan to address student strengths, challenges, and accommodations. Specific assistance is determined on an individual basis after collaboration with parents and teachers. At SPSG academic teachers embrace students with diverse learning styles and plan lessons enabling students to exercise their strengths while reinforcing areas of challenge.
Our goal is always to provide each student with the support that she needs, while encouraging and challenging her to explore and embrace her own strengths, thoughts, and dreams for her future.
