Public School Services
In the 2014/15 school year, The Institute for Creative Learners provided intense reading instruction to approxiately 120 pre-k, kindergarten, and first grade students at Wright Elementary School in Lubbock, Texas. Wright Elementary serves students who predominately come from economically disadvantaged families. With early intervention many challenges can be overcome before the child actually falls behind. For those who need additional services, early identification and testing means more effective intervention and avoids a loss of self-esteem that comes with failure, particularly if dyslexia is identified.
In the 2015/2016 school year, The Institute for Creative Learners will be expanding this service to include the first grade students at Bayless Elementary.
"[The Institute provides] high quality small group reading instruction to all prekindergarten, kindergarten, and first grade students on our campus. Each Friday students get to participate in art and science enrichment activities.
In all my 18 years in public education I have never seen a program have such a dramatic impact on student achievement and motivation as this. The students rotate between 2 highly engaging teaching stations and a third station where they utilize the Lexia computerized reading program on iPads. They truly love going to the CL classroom and the classroom teachers are thrilled with the progress they can see in students at all developmental levels. It is also worth noting that the Institute provides these invaluable services to our campus for almost nothing."
