Climax Springs has a great system in place to assist ALL students. They do grade checks every two weeks and provide RTI and interventions to ANY and ALL students that need assistance. The Special Education Department is available and staffed to assist the needs of the students within this distirct above and beyond. Each student has the oppportunity to receive explicit individual instruction to meet their differentiated learning needs. Vital parent communication is necessary to assist with their student's learning. Staff encourages and empowers students to advocate for their own learning as well.

The school does not help my child with adhd. They don't even have any special class or anything to help kids out. They don't even have any after school program to help kids that are falling behind. There are a lot of kids even mine that really need more help. And this school does not have anything to help.

The small school atmosphere allows teachers to become involved with indivdual students.
