Academic Advantages

Your son will not have to sacrifice learning opportunities in order to address his therapeutic issues. Discovery Ranch offers many academic advantages. The school day starts at 4:00 pm and ends at 8:00 pm. On Fridays, he will participate in academic experiential activities, such as live animal shows or trips to a museum.

Because the average student/teacher ratio is 12/1, your son will always have the individualized attention he needs. Our academic program is competency based. Your son will work at his own pace through the standard curriculum. After he masters a subject with at 80% mastery, he will move on to more challenging material. Your son’s need determine the pace of the class, not the teacher’s schedule.

You will be able to keep track of your son’s progress with our secure Parent Portal. You will be able to see weekly progress reports, see pictures and videos of experiential learning activities, and communicate with your son’s teacher and therapist.

Discovery Ranch is not a packet program. Instead, students use standard textbooks divided into chapters. Because the educational program is individualized, we can challenge gifted students and accommodate students with special needs.
