“…the approach of special education in schools has been to identify students’ weaknesses and teach around them, essentially teaching to their strengths. Arrowsmith’s approach is the opposite. The teachers work to identify brain weaknesses and then teach to them – building up the brain pathways and connections that students need. My hope is that all students with learning differences will be exposed to brain training and freed from the labels and limits they have been forced to live with, replacing these instead with hope engendered by a transformed brain.”

"I was totally demoralized because I had been in an environment of constant failure since kindergarten. Arrowsmith helped me defy the odds everyone said I would never overcome. Compared to the other programs, none of which touched my problems, Arrowsmith helped me to penetrate and actually resolve the problems. It works if you work, the way a bodybuilder has to."
At 13 Dan had a grade 3 reading level: psychological testing results informed his family he would not read beyond that. After Arrowsmith, Dan was reading and doing math at his age-appropriate grade- level, went on to graduate from college and now works in venture capital.
Our day school welcomes students to transform their cognitive profile and access our specialized academic programming, as well as varied enrichment such as field trips, lunch clubs, and a close-knit community of faculty and students.
