When it comes to education of your child, a lot of questions come to the surface. View our frequently asked questions and please contact us if you have additional questions about Meredith-Dunn School.

Students come to us with a variety of learning differences, which is why we are so prescriptive in our teaching approaches. We primarily serve children with specific language based learning differences in reading, math, and written expression.

Progress is monitored carefully throughout the school year, as well as through standardized assessments. Many families find that once their child is making strides in both academics and confidence, they prefer to continue receiving the ongoing support of a Meredith-Dunn education. We are always happy to discuss exit plans to aid the family in their decisions for moving forward.
