ML Learning Support

“Developing to your greatest potential—that is winning.” - Elliott Galloway

Every student’s learning journey at Galloway is unique. Collaboration is at the heart of everything we do, and we value a close relationship with students, parents, and teachers. The Learning Support Team provides direct and indirect support to students who exhibit difficulty with learning and/or performance. We endeavor to help students progress in their understanding of their own learning, increase their academic independence, and strengthen their executive functioning skills.

Early adolescence is a unique time, and we honor and respect every student for who they are and for who they are becoming. Middle Learning is a safe space where students grow socially, emotionally, and academically. In partnership with teachers, the Learning Support team promotes self-advocacy, independence, and confidence through academic and executive functioning support. 

Learning Support in Middle Learning focuses on written expression, reading comprehension, math, and executive functioning. For students with a current psycho-educational evaluation, we develop a Learning Plan based on the report. This plan provides faculty with information about instructional strategies and support for the student. Students with a psycho-educational evaluation may participate in the Academic Skills and Organization (ASO) course.

While The Galloway School does not modify our academic curriculum, we can provide the following accommodations, as recommended by a current psychoeducational evaluation:

  • Extended time
  • Strategic seating
  • Alternative locations for tests/quizzes 
  • Individual laptop usage
  • Assistance with note-taking
  • Assistive technology, including calculators and audiobooks

We look forward to supporting Middle Learning students in their learning journey.
