Established in 1963, Kradwell School is a private, nontraditional, nonsectarian fifth through twelfth grade Program. Kradwell School specializes in serving students who cannot succeed in the traditional school environment.

Success at Kradwell is generated by teachers and support staff whose goal is to develop an educational plan tailored to the learning and behavioral characteristics of each child.

Individualized Instruction is the foundation of our academically focused education program. This method mandates a small teacher to student ratio, 1/5. Not only does this method allow students to progress at their own rate, it also eliminates the need for excessive homework. Students attend six classes for three hours in either the A.M or P.M. Progress reports and notes are available on-line.

Staff understands the learning and behavioral health issues presented by our students. These include Dyslexia, A.D.D., A.D.H.D, Anxiety Disorders, Bi-Polar Disorder, Depression, P.S.T.D., O.C.D., Reactive Attachment Disorder and Asperger’s Syndrome. Though unsuccessful in the traditional school setting, many of our students function in the gifted and talented range.

Students who choose to attend our nontraditional school benefit from our highly structured, individualized plan for their academic, emotional and behavioral growth. Students are welcome to enroll throughout the school year.
