Marburn students in Lower Division work to remediate specific skills in reading, writing, spelling, math, organization and focus, while also participating in social studies, science, self-awareness, music, art, gym, and technology classes. Our whole school day, from academics to extracurricular activities and specials, is designed to take advantage of our students' strengths while addressing their remediation needs. Daily small-group Orton-Gillingham language classes and experientially-based math classes provide the solid instructional foundation for teaching non-intuitive learners academic sub skills necessary for success with the higher level critical thinking and problem solving requirements of our twenty-first century curriculum.
Classrooms are built on a model of 16 students with two full-time, lead teachers. This model permits individualized and small-group attention while also allowing flexibility so that one teacher can work with one student if necessary, while the other teacher continues with the rest of the class.
