Who We Serve: A Closer Look at Kentwood's Multidisciplinary Approach
At Kentwood Preparatory School, we believe in the unique potential of each student. Founded in 1999, our fully accredited day school is designed to cater to the needs of average to bright children who may not thrive in conventional educational settings. Our mission is to provide an environment where these students can flourish academically, socially, and emotionally. Let's dive deeper into our multidisciplinary approach and how it helps us fulfill this mission.
Understanding Our Students
The students we serve often have unique learning styles that are not always accommodated in traditional classrooms. They may have learning differences, attention deficit disorders, or simply require a smaller, more personalized educational environment to succeed. At Kentwood, we acknowledge these differences and tailor our teaching methods to cater to each student's individual needs.
The Kentwood Multidisciplinary Approach
Our multidisciplinary approach involves a team of highly trained educators, counselors, and support staff working together to provide a holistic education experience for our students. This team works collaboratively to design and implement individualized education plans (IEPs) for each student. These plans take into account a student's strengths, weaknesses, learning style, and personal goals.
Our structured expectations ensure that each student knows what is required of them and can work towards meeting these standards in a supportive and nurturing environment. We set realistic, achievable goals for our students and provide them with the resources and support they need to reach these milestones.
The Role of Our Trained Team
Our trained team plays a crucial role in the success of our multidisciplinary approach. Teachers provide personalized instruction, adapting their teaching styles to the needs of each student. Counselors offer emotional and social support, helping students navigate the challenges of adolescence and develop important life skills. Support staff ensure the smooth running of the school and provide additional assistance to students as needed.
Together, this team creates a supportive, nurturing environment where students can thrive. Regular meetings and open communication among the team members ensure that each student's progress is closely monitored and adjustments are made as necessary.
The Result: Empowered Students
The result of our multidisciplinary approach is a community of empowered students. Our students develop a love for learning, gain confidence in their abilities, and learn to navigate the world with resilience and determination. They leave Kentwood equipped with the academic, social, and emotional skills they need to succeed in college and beyond.
