Cambridge School is an extraordinary place where children who learn differently thrive. Cambridge is an independent, K-12, nurturing day school located in Pennington, New Jersey, that specializes in serving children with language-based learning differences, such as dyslexia, dysgraphia, auditory processing disorder, ADHD, and executive function difficulties, among others. These children are bright and exceedingly capable, yet they are often underserved in other environments. At Cambridge School, these children are understood and offered what they need to succeed, both personally and academically.
Cambridge School uses the highest standards to ensure an unparalleled program for their students, which includes: an expertly trained team of teachers and therapists, a solid college-bound academic foundation that is predicated on evidence-based research and emphasizes language, critical thinking, executive function, and metacognitive skills. In particular, the language-based curriculum includes three 45-minute periods of language instruction daily; including language, written expression, and reading. This curriculum is delivered through direct, explicit instruction using programs such as Orton-Gillingham, Wilson Reading System, Lindamood-Bell Learning Process, Hochman Basic Writing Skills, and Story Grammar Marker.
Cambridge School classes are small, structured, nurturing, and supported by cutting-edge technology. Students have access to Google Chromebooks, laptop computers, personal iPads, SMARTBoards, green-screen technology, and 3D printer. Google Apps for Education is used to support student learning, which allows students to gain the necessary skills for today’s connected world. A wide variety of field trips are carefully aligned to the curriculum to further enhance student learning.
Many Cambridge School students benefit from the additional support that speech and language therapy provides. Our pathologists work to develop intensive, individualized treatment programs that are tailored to meet each child’s unique challenges. Our ASHA-certified speech and language pathologists have experience with a range of pediatric speech and language disorders.
While Cambridge’s student-centered approach to education provides a highly individualized and specialized experience for each child, they believe in providing a comprehensive program that supports the whole child. This is done by offering dynamic visual and performing arts programs, a well-established athletics program, and a variety of extracurricular clubs.
The team at Cambridge School is particularly excited about the Educational Diagnostic Center, now in its second year of operation. The EDC was opened in response to a growing need in the community to provide timely and fairly-priced psychoeducational evaluations. The EDC team includes nationally certified school psychologists, ASHA certified speech and language pathologists, and NBCOT certified occupational therapists. These EDC professionals, who are experts in their field, provide a full range of evaluations.
The Psychoeducational Evaluation incorporates measures to identify language-based learning differences such as: dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyscalculia, ADHD, and executive function challenges. The Speech and Language Evaluations are designed to assess the components of language, speech development, executive function skills, memory, processing and articulation. The Occupational Therapy Evaluations assess the impact of occupational performance on school-based activities. Please refer to the EDC website for more detailed information: https://eddiagnostic.org
