At St. Peter’s School, we strive to prepare all of our students for meaningful participation in a diverse society. We get to know each of our students as individuals and differentiate instruction to meet their needs. Beyond the classroom, we provide additional services from our Learning Support Team, which is comprised of a Reading Specialist, Learning Specialist, Psychologist, and STEAM Coordinator.
Our Reading Specialist and Learning Specialist provide support for children demonstrating need in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. They push into the classroom and meet with students one to one and in small groups, guiding students in meeting goals determined by their families, classroom teacher, Division Director, and the Learning Support Team. Extended learning opportunities are available to students seeking enrichment in varying subjects.
The STEAM Coordinator is responsible for the development, instructional leadership, and implementation of an interdisciplinary STEAM curriculum and educational opportunities throughout the school. The STEAM Coordinator also provides additional math support and enrichment to students as needed.
The school employs a Licensed Consulting Psychologist who works along with a practicum student from Widener University’s Institute for Graduate Clinical Psychology. When recommended by teachers or requested by parents, the counseling team performs classroom observations, meets students for counseling, and works closely with teachers to provide support within the classroom. Students may also be referred for outside services.
Speech and Language
Students in Kindergarten through Eighth Grade who demonstrate a need for speech and language services are screened in the fall, and those students who would benefit from services meet one to one with a therapist from an outside provider on a weekly basis.
