“I think in paragraphs, speak in sentences, but write in words.”
A quote from a student in the book, To Be Gifted & Learning Disabled, by S. Baum, R. Schader and S. Owen.
What is Custom Learning
Triad’s small class sizes and experienced teachers make it possible to better understand the individual learning needs of each student. Our teachers employ traditional techniques, like the use of textbooks and workbooks, to create custom learning paths for each student. In addition to traditional techniques, Triad uses a web-based learning program from edginuity to support the curriculum
and continually assess students’ progress. Twice a year students are also assessed using the Woodcock Johnson Achievement Test. This test compares the student to national norms. Unlike most academic assessments this test compare students by grade level and age. We use these two tests to help Triad provide a custom learning path for each student.
We believe students require more from school than simply providing challenging curriculum. Knowing how to interact with peers and understanding one’s self is an important life skill, but is not often taught in a classroom.
Navigate Social Situations
Triad teaches students how to communicate more clearly with those around them in a respectful and productive way.
With Custom Learning’s multi-dimensional assessment and prescribed personalized learning paths, teachers can address the needs of each and every student in the classroom, including gifted and talented, and high-achieving students.
Our classrooms are not limited by grade level boundaries. The design of the classroom takes into account developmental stages and expected educational outcomes. This allows our teachers to appropriately challenge each individual student.

Triad's Academic Environment
Triad School’s goal is to create an academic environment where children can delve into their own interests in greater depths. Students will use these interests to learn and practice foundational skills. These skills will be the building blocks for their educational career.
