New Head of School

Dear Parents, Teachers, Community, Alumni and Board Members,

Today is my official first day as the Head of School at dePaul!

What Is the Orton-Gillingham Approach, and Why Does the Depaul School Use It?

This approach is designed for students who have difficulties with reading, writing, and spelling. It works especially well with dyslexic students, who may not learn in the same way and pace as a non-dyslexic student.

Mission Statement

Helping bright children meet their potential.

The dePaul School for Dyslexia is a specialized, independent school dedicated to the education of children in 1st-8th grades with dyslexia and related language-based learning difficulties, with the primary goal of enabling these students to achieve academic and personal success.
