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. That's a better rate than their peers in mainstream schools who do not have learning differences.
DePaul is Jacksonville's first full-time school for dyslexia (grades 2-8).
Our parent-created school has helped students with specific learning differences like dyslexia, dyscalculia, dysgraphia, auditory and visual processing disorders, memory impairment, ADD, and ADHD for nearly forty years.
DePaul School uses a multisensory, Orton-Gillingham-based approach to meet the unique neurological needs of students who fall behind in regular classrooms or special education due to dyslexia.
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.
