Academics

Lower School

The Lower School includes children with diagnosed learning differences in grades 2 through 5. Each grade is made up of 8-10 students, taught grade level subjects with differentiated instruction based on ability and learning style. Student response is constantly monitored and teaching techniques are adapted to most effectively meet individual needs. Self-esteem is an important factor in the learning process and as students experience success, they find the confidence to attempt greater challenges in their academics. The nurturing environment at Woodfield Academy supports social-emotional learning in both individual and group situations.

Middle/Upper School

The Middle School offers a structured academic program providing grade level content and appropriate remedial instruction to students with diagnosed learning differences, grades 6 through 12. Classes are made up of 8-12 students who receive direct instruction for academic deficit areas, and compensatory strategies for personal learning needs and self-advocacy skills. Electives and activities such as student council, yearbook, community service initiatives, field trips, etc. are offered to compliment the emphasis on academic success.

Rivoli School

ONE SCHOOL - TWO ACADEMIC TRACKS
At Woodfield, we recognize the importance of providing a curriculum for students with developmental delays.  This inclusive philosophy is the foundation for Rivoli School, designed for students 8-21 in need of a functional curriculum, rich in experiential learning.  The curriculum is individualized to address specific needs of each student and strengthen functional, academic, motor and living skills.  Students participate in pre-vocational and vocational experiences through community based instruction.  Social and emotional learning opportunities are abundant as teachers and instructors purposefully challenge their students' understanding of ability and self-awareness.
