Kenneth Gordon Maplewood School occupies a unique position among independent schools that specialize in teaching children with learning disabilities, being the first of its kind in Western Canada. With over 40 years of experience, we’ve determined that the following attributes are required of a potential student.
Submit a current psycho-educational assessment which indicates a language-based learning disability; or other supporting documentation indicating other learning challenges including, but not limited to, chronic health; visual or hearing impairments; or Autism Spectrum Disorder;
Meet the Ministry of Education guidelines for designation of a learning disability;
Have average to superior intelligence;
Demonstrate that the primary impediments to the student’s learning process are learning differences. Any behavioral, physical or emotional issues must be of secondary concern.
KGMS is a “school of second choice”. If your first choice of school, public or private, has not met the needs of your child we invite you to consider an alternative. If your child meets the above criteria, please contact us today for a tour.
