Why Kradwell

Overcoming Challenges by embracing differences

At Kradwell, we believe that every student is capable of success. No matter what type of challenges they may be struggling with, we'll provide ongoing opportunities, resources and support for them to learn and grow at their own pace, in their own way.

Our teachers understand that a “one-size-fits all” education can't possibly suit everyone. It's why we offer small classes, a highly personalized approach and one-on-one time with teachers. It's why we place such emphasis on establishing trust and building relationships. It's why we nurture everyone's differences. It's why so many of our students find success at Kradwell — in school, at home, and in life.

Is Kradwell Right for You?

  • Are your child's academic, social, or emotional needs not being sufficiently met by his/her current school?
  • Does your child have difficulty making it to school on a regular basis?
  • Does your child consistently struggle with getting homework done on time, or at all?
  • Does your child perform below expectations on tests, even when they seem to have a good understanding of the material?

If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, Kradwell may be a good choice for your child.
