Oak Hill School’s Learning Services Department is one of the features that distinguishes Oak Hill in the private school community. Two full time learning specialists serve students, parents, and teachers in order to individualize each student’s learning experience.
Oak Hill provides students at all grade levels with academic support or enrichment challenges through Learning Services in an individual or small group setting. While some children may be receiving intervention in foundational reading skills, others may be offered extra challenges in mathematical problem solving or practice in developing more efficient study skills, just to name a few areas addressed by the department.
The learning specialists regularly serve as resources to help parents and teachers better understand the unique learning profile of each student. Even students who do not enter the Learning Services Department during the day are advantaged when their teacher receives support to meet the challenges of his or her job. This collaborative approach has proven highly effective in ensuring the success of Oak Hill’s learners and the satisfaction of its families.
