A school-within-a-school where skilled faculty meet students’ learning differences with the individualized instruction that leads to success.
Since 1988, The Hamilton School at Wheeler has served elementary and middle school children who have great overall cognitive ability, but who struggle with reading, organization and study skills due to dyslexia, attention-deficit disorder (ADHD), executive function deficits or other learning differences. We believe — and prove daily — that our students can learn these important skills and meet the highest expectations.
Hamilton students are also taught to advocate for themselves and others with learning differences. In 2019, the Rhode Island Legislature presented commendations to Hamilton students and young alumni who testified on behalf of legislation for dyslexic students in the State.
