Developing Exceptional Children Through Exceptional Support
At The Mead School, we have a long history of meeting students where they are and developing their potential in unique and innovative ways. Through Nexus at Mead, we are able to offer the next level of individual support.
Combined with existing elements of The Mead School approach to learning, Nexus is an inclusive educational option for twice exceptional children, bright students who have the ability to perform at or above grade level when given the appropriate supports and differentiation. The Nexus program's integration within The Mead School model allows children the opportunities to go deeper into their strengths within and outside of traditional academic areas, which can include the arts, music, drama and STEAM, thus providing an optimal environment for their potential to thrive.
A Full Inclusion Program
Every parent knows child development is not linear. The ride can be bumpy, with skills and tool-sets developing unevenly, making a standard school environment a difficult place to thrive. Difficulty in school is rarely linked to intellectual capacity, but rather a need for a differentiated learning environment with small class sizes and tailored supports. Nexus offers all the elements that twice exceptional students need to succeed.
The Nexus program serves children with language-based challenges (including expressive and/or receptive language), ADD/ADHD, auditory processing or sensory processing challenges, anxiety, high-functioning ASD, and social communication challenges. With the supports and full inclusion the program provides, Nexus students can grow confidence, love school, and achieve their full potential.
