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. Now, through the addition of 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. 


An integrated educational solution

The Nexus program has been created to serve intellectually capable children with academic, social, or emotional challenges who, with appropriate modification and support, can perform at or above grade level. The Nexus model brings the best we know about child development and education to life.  

Nexus combines specific instruction in identified areas of need within a fully integrated learning environment tailored to the needs and strengths of each student. 

Through a safe and nurturing approach, and with a fully warm and welcoming school environment, Nexus students will develop self-confidence and learn to self-advocate, all essential qualities of a Mead education.

 

 

 

 

 


Exceptional education 

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.

At Mead, we understand that a differentiated learning environment with small class sizes and tailored supports can make all the difference, and Nexus offers all the elements that twice exceptional students need to succeed.

The Nexus program has been developed to serve 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.

 


Differentiated instruction open to all

The Mead School values are manifested in an embrace of diversity, a strong social/emotional curriculum, and broad offerings in the expressive arts and STEAM, resulting in students learning how to self-advocate and develop agency. This type of provision makes Nexus a perfect addition that will offer benefits for all Mead students, not just those following the full Nexus program.

Through the introduction of a range of individually available services, all Mead students will have the opportunity to access specific additional support should they ever need it. 

From speech therapy to occupational therapy or academic support, the opportunity will exist for all Mead families to access Nexus resources.
