In 1969, The Kildonan School was founded to meet the needs of students with dyslexia by strengthening language skills, by providing stimulating subject matter courses, and by building confidence and self-esteem. We have evolved over the decades to offer all our students state of the art technology and applications, an innovative, college-preparatory curriculum, a diverse visual arts and design program, and a dyslexic-friendly foreign language program. Our small school environment offers both individual attention and the opportunity for student leadership and student-driven exploration within a structured, yet flexible, program of study which progresses throughout the grade levels. Our curriculum follows our school mission to reveal and illuminate the strengths of the dyslexic individual.

Maplebrook School was founded in 1945 by three bold women empowered by a vision 3-foundersof an inclusive boarding school community dedicated to educating students not well-served by the mainstream educational system. The language used to describe the population of students Sunny Barlow, Serena Merck, and Marjorie Finger had in mind has changed over the years. Today, we describe those students as young men and women who learn differently.
We recognize each student as an individual whose learning profile of unique strengths and challenges is so much more than their numerical scores, and seek to serve each learner in the specific ways he or she needs to thrive.
