Star Academy 5

My daughter was very fortunate to spend several years attending Star Academy. It gave her the support and foundation she needed to be successful afterwards in a large public high school. What was really impressive and helpful about Star's program was the 1:1 work with specialists - the secret sauce of the program - AND all the support she ALSO had in the classroom. The teachers and specialists were very competent (important to me) and VERY kind, nurturing, and supportive (important to her). I am indebted to the program and staff.

Star Academy has moved to its new, lovely permanent site in San Rafael. My son with dyslexia, AD/HD, and social cognition deficits but a high IQ attended for three years. Star specializes in appropriate education for students with complex learning disabilities. The unique strengths of Star are the specialists who work onsite at the school: Occupational Therapist, Art Therapist, Lindamood-Bell, Slingerland, Speech and Language Therapists, and the specialized curriculum: Making Math Real and Michelle Garcia Winner's Social Thinking curriculum. Star is a gem for most students with learning disabilities. My son learned processes that now help him in public high school.
