At Monte Cassino, we understand that every student has unique needs and educational goals.
We offer a number of services within the context of the school day to help exceptional learners, regardless of whether those learners are ahead or behind the core curriculum.
Most student needs can be met through the REACH Program, which strives to meet students at their particular educational level and provide resources to challenge each student to reach their potential. In the middle school, this means access to teachers during tutorial sessions; at the elementary school, it is achieved through one-on-one coaching and mentoring. For needs that exceed these capabilities, Monte Cassino teachers and administrators will happily coordinate with outside professionals to streamline service delivery to our students.
Monte Cassino offers short-term interventions and counseling services for all students. In addition, the school does provide a licensed counselor to meet with students as necessary.
Teachers strive to make appropriate accommodations for all learners during the school day. For students who need additional support beyond these interventions, Monte Cassino maintains connections with the local community and can provide recommendations for services that would best fit your child.
Rainbows programs help children who are grieving the loss of a parent or guardian due to death, divorce, deployment, or trauma. Rainbows' trained facilitators, using age-appropriate curriculum, establish peer support groups in schools, faith-based organizations, or community centers.
Monte Cassino is proud to partner with the Rainbows organization in order to provide support groups for our students who are in the midst of the grieving process. For more information, please contact your child’s teacher.
