Says director Ruth Arberman, M.Ed.: "Too often, schools make children feel that they are the cause of academic failure. Our underlying philosophy at Sterling is that all children can learn and that they will learn. Our program nurtures children's innate love for learning." All staff members have many years of experience teaching dyslexic children, and teachers are well-trained in the Orton-Gillingham method.
The school is fully accredited by the National Private Schools Association Group. A charter from the Board of Regents of the State of New York Education Department is currently in process.
