Academics Overview The Linden Hill academic program incorporates various methods to assist students in acquiring necessary skills for secondary school and beyond. However, at the heart of this pedagogy is the Orton-Gillingham method. The School, being ungraded, facilitates studentsâ€™ placement in classes based on similar academic needs rather than by age alone. The curriculum, aligned to the state frameworks, allows students to progress at their own pace. The School has a pending application with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to be considered as a state approved, Chapter 766, private school. Small teacher-to-student ratios and a physical classroom that places teacher and student face to face provide structure and a small, specific feedback loop. This environment promotes an intimate student teacher relationship. Use of a multi-sensory approach presents multiple opportunities for each boy to receive information in a manner that complements his own learning style. All students receive time to process and approach work differently as well as the tools to support their specific academic needs. For many new students at Linden Hill, this classroom is the first where they can feel appreciated and respected by their teachers. At Linden Hill there is no accommodating; only teaching.
