The Sterling School was founded in 1999 to meet the needs of Dyslexic and Language Based Learning Disabled children using research-based methodology. It was apparent that in the New York City area, there were only a handful of schools that had any sort of program for Dyslexic children and few with a specialized curriculum designed specifically for them. The mission of The Sterling School is to provide that curriculum. Reading, writing, spelling and language arts are addressed using a sequential, direct multi-modal methodology known as Orton-Gillingham. Students receive instruction in classrooms where there is a 1 to 8-teacher student ratio. In addition to daily individual remediation which provides an individualized, integrated learning environment.
