Description

In 1989 a group of parents, with the help of Dr. Matthew Rose, joined with The Developmental Resource Center, an award winning school in Florida, to bring the DRC programs to Nassau.
In 1992, parents and teachers came together to expand those programs and create Blairwood Academy.
Today, the spirit of our founders guides our work.

Mission
Blairwood Academy is designed to serve elementary and high school students who learn best when given individualized attention
in a small school environment.
We serve a wide range of students including those with learning disabilities. These students have good intelligence, but struggle with some area of learning.

Learning disabilities can interfere with, reading, spelling, expressing oneself in writing, mastering mathematics or understanding and using language.
At Blairwood we specialize in science based programs for students with Dyslexia, and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity.



Philosophy
Teaching must be based on proven methods, and individualized planning.
Learning differently does not mean learning less. Students must be challenged to achieve.
Learning cannot happen without taking risks, and making mistakes. Students must feel safe to take the risks that lead to learning.

Learning involves more than academics. Students need guidance to grow into mature, thoughtful adults with strong personal ethics, and social responsibility.
