Admissions

Meredith-Dunn School accepts students who have average to above average cognitive abilities identified with receptive & expressive language delays, dyslexia, auditory processing disorders, mild ADD with learning delays, written expression delays, and issues with visual-perceptual processing.  Students with mild anxiety or sensory delays within their profile are reviewed case-by-case.  Students are grouped prescriptively for reading and math with all other content based upon national core standards.

Any of these issues can cause a child not to succeed in school, have organizational difficulties, and cause their self-esteem to suffer. Our small classes are staffed with a trained, certified teacher and a full-time teaching assistant to provide personal attention as needed.

Our Admissions Process

New students are accepted on the basis of psychoeducational testing, previous school records, social/emotional competence, adaptive behavior, attitude toward school, and available class placement. Our school program and curriculum is not designed to successfully meet the needs of children whose primary diagnosis is a behavior disorder, mood/bipolar disorder, autism, or a neurological/cognitive disorder.

Meredith-Dunn School adheres to the principles of good practice in admissions as supported by ISACS. The Admissions Director works closely with parents to gather information, reports and questionnaires regarding the student’s identified learning needs. All information gathered helps to determine if Meredith-Dunn School is a good match for that child’s learning requirements. Students are accepted upon a space available basis regardless of race, religion, color, gender, and national or ethnic origin.

Meredith-Dunn operates on a “rolling” admissions schedule, meaning enrollment is open throughout the school year.
