   The mission of The Lewis School is to educate and to empower bright, creative young people whose scholastic achievement and human potential are compromised by unresolved, language-based learning differences related to dyslexia ADHD, auditory processing, and executive functioning. It is to provide these promising students with the most exceptional multisensory educational opportunity possible within a school community specifically attuned and responsive to each student’s academic needs, and to the nurture of the whole person. It is to explore and prosper each student’s gifts and great promise.

Voices of Lewis.

   Founded in 1973, The Lewis School is a leading research-based, non-profit, co-educational college preparatory school in Princeton, New Jersey, that serves pre-kindergarten through high school and post-graduate age students impacted by language based learning differences.

   The Lewis School is a warm, enthusiastic, child-centered environment where master teachers, learning specialists and ASHA-certified speech-language pathologists tailor their strategies and mentoring to each child’s specific academic strengths and weaknesses, aptitudes and interests.

   The school, which combines its Clinic for Educational Therapy and Teacher Training, has developed an integrated system of education that replaces rote learning, memorization, and the teaching of scatter skills with systematic, individualized, multisensory processes and strategies that engage the many capacities and senses of the brain in the learning experience.

   The Lewis School is ungraded and serves pre-kindergarten through high school age students. It also provides educational intervention and support for high school post-graduates, gap year students, and college students looking to build stronger reading, writing, and study skills. Lewis is fully accredited by the New Jersey Association of Independent Schools (NJAIS), and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and The Orton International Dyslexia Society.

Scare Away Hunger

The Scare Away Hunger project asks the Lewis community to bring canned foods between Halloween and Thanksgiving. Her goal is to create a “Great Wall of Cans” that, when brought down, would open up possibilities to children who are hungry during this season of plenty.
