5-8 GRADE Program
All May School teachers earn certification in multi-sensory language therapy through Shelton School of Dallas, the largest school for students with learning differences in the world, as well as have extensive training in the research-based methods that work best for diverse learners. Our 6:1 student/teacher ratio ensures that our students maximize how they learn best with focused, individualized instruction.
The Intermediate School, located at our Galisteo Campus, serves grades 5-8. Intermediate students have daily language therapy classes focused on individualized support in certified Orton-Gillingham based reading and writing curriculum. An emphasis on reading comprehension, vocabulary building, and developing critical thinking skills is present across the curriculum.
May School's arts integration program teaches students to be creative problem solvers through understanding multiple points of view, design thinking, and an emphasis on developing executive functioning skills. Intermediate School students also participate in a number of special programs throughout the year including a partnership with Santa Fe Climbing Gym, our Winter Ski and Sports Program, classes in Visual Arts, Graphic Design, and Video in our two Art and Design Studios, and explicit instruction in Social Skills, Executive Functioning Skills, and Mindfulness.
