Many other specialty schools can trace their roots to the groundbreaking work of our founder, Peter Gow, Jr., and Samuel T. Orton. Today their pioneering spirit continues in our experienced teaching team, who are fiercely dedicated to our research-driven remediation program and to their students’ futures. In small classes that foster personalized instruction, students become stronger readers and more confident writers. In fact, confidence is a natural outgrowth of language improvement (usually apparent shortly after arrival) and our culture of success.
