The Prentice School


Imagine a school designed specifically for your child?

Prentice is a award-winning private school designed for children with language-based learning disabilities, like dyslexia and co-occurring conditions, including ADHD.  Our program is designed to prepare and empower our students for a life of self-advocacy, personal growth and the understanding that their differences can be their strengths.

Welcome from our Head of School!

Over 35 years ago, a small group of parents banded together with one goal... to create an educational institution that would give their children with dyslexia the education they deserved.  They formed what is now The Prentice School.  

Today, that small school is now a 6.6 acre campus with over 25 classrooms serving over 146 students through 8th grade.

Our goal is still the same.  To teach students with language-based learning differences and co-occurring conditions (like ADHD) that they are creative, intelligent and capable of becoming our future leaders.  That they can succeed beyond their wildest dreams.

I am so excited that you're considering becoming a member of the Prentice family and look forward to meeting you and your student soon.
