The Learning Center

9T3A2545Yeshiva University High School for Girls recognizes that all students negotiate their high school experience equipped with a variety of strengths and needs. The Dr. Martin Lilker Learning Center at Yeshiva University High School for Girls aims to assist students who have been identified as having different learning requirements by offering them opportunities and accommodations to allow them to reach their potential in a supportive and safe educational environment. Our Learning Center takes a multi-tiered and exible approach to intervention and support. The Learning Specialists work together with the administration to design individualized learning plans that encompass the totality of the student experience. Services are provided along a continuum of support, from small remedial classes and curricular modifications to occasional tutorials and consultations, always aspiring for the least restrictive environment and the utmost social and academic integration. All students are respected and nurtured at Yeshiva University High School for Girls. The Dr. Martin Lilker Learning Center ensures that students with different learning styles and diverse needs feel safe, valued, and supported. The Support Program consists of a small group of students who work together with the Learning Specialists for five or six periods a week. The sessions in the Learning Center are designed to improve study skills, review class material, answer questions, and help students prepare for tests. The Learning Specialists observe classes, proactively conference with teachers, and work with each student to help her reach her potential as she navigates her way through a rigorous curriculum. The goal is to provide our students with the tools and skills to become as independent as they can be. Parent feedback is valued, and parents are in touch with the Learning Specialists on a regular basis. The Support Program is most successful when we work as a team!
