Of the 300 students in the Lower and Middle-Upper Schools, approximately 80% are children with average to superior intelligence with a broad range of learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, non-verbal learning disorders, speech/language, and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder and processing disorders.
The goal of Briarwood is to provide a learning environment that fosters the total development of each student and builds academic skills, increases motivation, and bolsters self-esteem. By identifying a child’s learning style, remediating weaknesses, and teaching to strengths, Briarwood provides each child with a solid foundation that serves as the basis for future successes.
When walking the halls of Briarwood, you get the feeling of being in a traditional school setting. The difference is our teaching philosophy….meeting the educational needs of our non-traditional learners.
