St. Timothy’s School is committed to high-quality instruction. We incorporate research-based, best practices into our daily instruction to help all of our students to be as successful as possible. We continue to focus on differentiated instruction within the classroom to meet the learning needs and learning styles of our students. In addition to differentiation in the classroom, St. Timothy’s School has a Lower School and a Middle School Learning Specialist available to support students, families, and teachers.
Our learning specialists review academic data, including educational evaluations and standardized testing, and works closely with teachers, administrators, and parents to monitor student performance to maximize academic potential. Instructional strategies and/or accommodations for students may be implemented on a case-by-case basis.
In Lower School, limited accommodations are available because we are able to provide small-group, individualized instruction within the regular classroom to meet student needs.
In Middle School, in order for accommodations to be considered for students, we require a current educational evaluation (within 3 years) that indicates academic impairment (below average scores) and evidence from the classroom supporting the need for recommended accommodations.
Are teachers available for academic assistance?
Every teacher at St. Timothy's School is committed to helping students reach their academic potential. Our Lower School teachers are available throughout the year for parent conferences (by appointment only) to discuss ways both the parent and the teacher can help the student reach his or her potential in the classroom.
Middle School students have regulary scheduled Academic Assistance sessions rotated into their schedules. During this time, students are allowed to work on homework assignments and projects, and may seek out a specific teacher for extra assistance. After-school sessions are offered at least twice a week by every Middle School teacher. If additional help is needed, students may also contact a particular teacher to request an extra help session.
