Mead Hall presents students with a challenging curriculum and encourages them to excel academically. While our small class sizes afford the opportunity for individual attention, our faculty and staff are not trained to teach children with special needs or learning disabilities. Students with mild disabilities can often succeed in a typical classroom setting when given some degree of individual attention. However, when disabilities are moderate to severe, a learning environment with specialized instructors would be required.
