The Springer School and Center, located on Madison Road in Hyde Park, empowers children with learning disabilities in grades 1 through 8 to lead successful lives. The specialized curriculum and personalized teaching strategies help students build the educational, emotional, and social skills to succeed in the classroom—and in life.
A learning disability interferes with a child’s ability to take in information, process what it means, store it away for future use, or retrieve it for written or verbal output. Children with these specific learning difficulties and disabilities benefit from a Springer education:
- Performing below grade level due to circumstances not related to a developmental or behavioral diagnosis
- A deficit in reading, comprehension, remembering, writing or math
- Diagnosed with dyslexia (dyslexic), dyspraxia, dyscalculia or dysgraphia
- Individualized Education Plan (IEP) with specific learning difficulties, other health impaired minor or minor speech and language
Springer is successful when students with learning disabilities have developed the capabilities that allow them to succeed in school and life. With both a teacher and an instructional assistant in every classroom, the student-to-staff ratio is 6:1.
Classroom instruction and other types of learning include art, music and physical education. Language, occupational therapy and psychological services are available as needed, and technology is integrated throughout the school. Students also have access to numerous extracurricular activities.
Admission to Springer
Springer accepts students with learning disabilities between the ages of 6 and 12. The admission process, including a review of an educational evaluation, can begin at any time of year.
A premier educational program for students with learning disabilities is expensive. The good news is that Springer awarded need-based financial aid to 48 percent of students last year, and Ohio students with an IEP can also apply for a scholarship from the state.
