Learning Support

Bentley School is committed to providing support to all students. Our Learning Support team provides collaboration and consultation with parents and guardians, teachers, advisors, and outside support professionals to ensure students’ success. We help teachers to implement classroom strategies that reach all learners at every level, and support students who have identified learning differences.

Bentley’s philosophy of teaching and learning helps all students meet the school’s curricular goals, enables them to become more aware of how they learn, and empowers them to advocate for themselves and communicate their learning needs to their teachers.

The K-12 Teaching and Learning team facilitates accommodations and provides support for students with learning differences. They promote the differentiation of instruction across the school, with all students in mind, and support faculty in the development and implementation of effective strategies to enhance instruction, assessment, and student learning. The team is available to consult with parents and guardians for resources about learning differences, including referrals to outside professionals and academic support.

Individual students may receive guidance to help them develop organizational skills and study strategies and reflect on his or her strengths and challenges in order to create a personalized plan. Students are encouraged to think of their study strategies as one element in developing the personal growth and advocacy skills for Bentley and beyond.
