“I remember meeting a classmate…from 1st grade and he said, ‘Oh, I remember you. You were the kid that never got anything right on your spelling tests.’ I don’t remember 1st grade much and I think for good reason – it crushed my confidence. Lewis School was amazingly supportive in building back that confidence that got crushed from me. Lewis provided the support for me to know that I could be successful.”

The Lewis School provides a unique learning program that is customized and individualized for students at the following levels: Lower School, Middle School, Upper School, and Post-Graduate. The school has always recognized, valued, and developed the intelligence and creative strengths of its bright, learning-different students of all ages. A student’s effort as well as his or her achievement is valued by all teachers. In this way, learning weaknesses are repaired, and the aptitudes and acumen of our bright children are developed.

Marsha Lewis’s proprietary system of teaching and learning is combined with well-known remedial programs such as Orton-Gillingham, Wilson Reading and Lindamood-Bell. Lewis Integrated Multisensory Mechanics of Language (LIMMOL) lays the foundation for students to become critical readers, efficient writers, and effective communicators. Skills of reading, writing, vocabulary, and comprehension, as well as underlying skills of language processing are integrated with course content. Ultimately, students learn how to learn. The Lewis School curriculum for literature, mathematics, sciences and humanities is challenging and competitive.

“The four years I spent in The Lewis School were utterly transformative and magical. I arrived with little to no confidence in my abilities as a student and thinker and left with a love of language and a desire to express myself in writing. The educators at Lewis saw me as an individual, and instilled in me the belief that my learning difference was a gift and not a curse.”
