Learning Support


There are five full-time Learning Support (LS) teachers across the school serving Toddler through Grade 12. Dr. Reed Rhodes works with students in the Early Childhood Center (ECC). Ms. Meghan Branks works with students in Elementary School (ES) Grades 1, 2, and 3, while Mr. Jose Tapia works with ES Grades 3-5 students. Ms. Tanya Farrol supports the middle school level (Grades 6 to 8), and Mr. Karl Mejia supports high school (Grades 9-12). Specifically, the LS teachers are responsible for supporting students at both ends of the learning spectrum ranging from students with learning disorders to students who are highly capable. The LS teachers provide a variety of services including reviewing previous records, gathering information, conducting individual assessments, writing reports, recommending strategies to classroom teachers and parents, delivering individualized instruction in one-to-one and small group situations, and supporting students both within and outside of their classrooms.

Most students enter the Learning Support program through a referral process initiated by teachers and/or parents. Some enter by providing documentation of participation in a support program from a previous school.
