Schools should teach the way students learn.
McLean’s Abilities Model™ has helped hundreds of students--both conventional learners and those with learning challenges ranging from dyslexia, anxiety and ADHD, to difficulties with executive functioning--to succeed at school and in life. By focusing on each child’s strengths, supporting in areas of individual challenge and fostering resilience, we are transforming how our students view themselves and their prospects. In recent surveys, 91% of parents reported a rise in their children’s self-esteem while 55% of our seniors gained entrance to “more or most selective” colleges as ranked by US News & World Report. And, our record suggests that nearly 100% of those students will graduate.
