In 2016-17, 84 percent of DePaul students increased their reading level by a full year or more. Forty-one percent grew MORE than a school year's worth.
DePaul is Jacksonville's first full-time school for dyslexia (grades 2-8), educating students with
specific learning differences, including dyscalculia, dysgraphia, auditory and visual processing
disorders, memory impairment, ADD, and ADHD. We've been helping kids in Northeast Florida for nearly forty years.
Many Florida IEPs refer to Dyslexia as "Specific Learning Disability." DePaul School uses the Orton-Gillingham approach to help kids who learn differently, going beyond conventional accommodations to provide an optimal learning environment for students who fall behind in regular classrooms or special education.
Our classrooms are filled with multi-sensory activities delivered by creative teachers in small-sized classes.
We are accredited by the AISF, and we serve children with dyslexia in Duval County, Clay County, St. John's County, and beyond. Most of our students attend DePaul using the McKay Scholarship, as part of Florida School Choice.
