Stars School & Learning Center
Located in Weymouth, MA, our school will serve children in grades 1-5 with language-based learning differences, including dyslexia.
Located at 163 Libbey Parkway, in Weymouth, MA, the Stars School & Learning Center is a private nonprofit school for children grades 1 – 5 with language-based learning differences, like dyslexia and co-occurring conditions, including ADHD. Opening in 2024, this first-of-its-kind on Boston’s South Shore day school will offer a unique experience for students with average to above-average intelligence, whose diverse learning styles may not be leveraged by a traditional academic setting.
Under the leadership of Dr. Jennifer Curtis, Chief Executive Officer of South Shore Stars and former Superintendent of Weymouth Public Schools, and a faculty of learning disability specialists, each student will be nurtured academically, socially, and emotionally.
Each student will have access to:
- A comprehensive learning plan that links specific diagnostic information, with specialized instruction, modified curricula and other related services (e.g., occupational therapy, counseling, speech therapy).
- Assistance using state-of-the-art materials and methods to address specific learning differences by Orton-Gillingham trained and certified teachers and staff.
- Individualized tutoring to assist students in meeting their individual academic goals.
- A South Shore School that values building confidence, friendships, and a love of learning.
We believe that students learn best when instruction is direct, sequential, multi-sensory, and addresses individual strengths and differences. Our approach to education is designed to help students reach their full potential. From our curriculum to our class sizes, everything we do is grounded in scientific research and decades of experience and evidence-based methods.
Along with our day-school program, we also offer additional programs for our students, such as enrichment opportunities, summer programs, and after-school activities.
Thank you to our corporate sponsors!
