Summary: The Linden Hill academic program incorporates various methods to assist students in acquiring necessary skills for secondary school and life. However, at the heart of this pedagogy, is the Orton-Gillingham method. The School, being ungraded, facilitates students placement in classes based on similar academic needs rather than by age alone. The curriculum, closely aligned to the state frameworks, allows students to progress at their own pace.
