I've Learned I Still Have a lot to Learn!

As Head of School, my goal is to provide the highest quality education for our students. Research has proven that for dyslexic students, an Orton-Gillingham (O-G) based structured literacy program like ours is the best and only way that they will learn. That being said, I am a firm believer that there is always something we can do to improve our program every year.

New Year, New Spaces, New Faces!

A lot of things changed over the summer at the dePaul School! Over the summer months we remodeled and expanded several areas - creating 2 new classrooms, additional administrative space and a fresh, new library. With the additional classrooms, we were able to increase enrollment to 76 students. With 76 students we needed additional teachers. With additional students and teachers came the need for a second fulltime administrator!
