Student-centered learning and research-based instruction for students with dyslexia.
Greengate School at Randolph serves students in grades 1-8 using an Orton-Gillingham approach to provide a specialized program of instruction that meets individual learning needs, while also offering students with dyslexia a full complement of co-curricular and extra-curricular school experiences. Greengate, one of 17 schools in the nation accredited by the Academy of Orton-Gillingham Practitioners and Educators and the only such school in Alabama or Tennessee, has educated children with dyslexia and related language-learning differences since 2002.
In 2018, Greengate School and Randolph School merged to allow Greengate students the wider resources and co-curricular activities of Randolph, while Randolph Students will have earlier identification of reading difficulties and earlier access to reading support.
It is estimated that 15-20% of the population has dyslexia or another language-based learning disability.
Dyslexia is the most common cause of reading, writing, and spelling difficulties. Early intervention with specialized instruction is key to a student’s continued academic growth and success. Randolph believes that access to dyslexia support is a critical resource for students.
A school of Randolph’s caliber offering an accredited Orton-Gillingham approach with Greengate teachers is an unparalleled resource for students and families in our region. Both schools are accredited by SAIS, the Southern Association of Independent Schools, and serve motivated students with average to superior intellectual capability.
Greengate has grown to be a dyslexia resource in North Alabama, offering a variety of services that are open to the community.
