Cambridge School is an extraordinary place where children who learn differently thrive. An independent, K-12, nurturing day school located in Pennington, New Jersey, Cambridge 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, 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. The expertly trained team of teachers and therapists provide a rigorous college-bound academic foundation that is predicated on evidence-based research and emphasizes language, critical thinking, executive function, and metacognitive skills. The intensive language-based curriculum includes three 45-minute periods of language instruction daily. 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, laptops, personal iPads, SMARTBoard, green-screen technology, and 3D printing. G Suite for Education is used to support student learning and allows students to gain the skills necessary for today’s connected world. To further enhance student learning, a wide variety of field trips and experiential learning opportunities are aligned to the curriculum.
Many Cambridge School students benefit from the additional support that speech and language therapy provides. Our speech 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 and adolescent speech and language disorders. Occupational therapy is also available to students as an intervention to develop, recover, or maintain meaningful activities or occupations. Treatment sessions are performed by a doctoral level occupational therapist.
Cambridge’s student-centered approach to education comprehensively supports the whole child. To complement it’s academic program, a well-established athletics program, dynamic visual and performing arts programs, and a variety of extracurricular clubs are offered.
The team at Cambridge School is particularly excited about the Educational Diagnostic Center, now in its fourth year of operation. The EDC was opened in response to a growing need in the community to provide timely and fairly-priced psychoeducational evaluations. Many evaluations conducted at the EDC are completed for the purpose of getting testing accommodations for students taking the ACT or SAT. 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
