Welcome to Arrowsmith School Peterborough

About

Arrowsmith School Peterborough is a privately owned co-educational and non-denominational day school that is dedicated to helping students with specific learning difficulties.  Arrowsmith School Peterborough, located about 1.5 hours east of Toronto, was established in 2005 as a wholly owned affiliate of Arrowsmith School Toronto.

The Arrowsmith Program of cognitive exercises was first offered to students with learning difficulties in 1978 and Arrowsmith School Toronto was established in 1980.

Students who come to Arrowsmith School Peterborough have been struggling in school – some are just starting their schooling but their experience has already shown a pattern of learning problems. Others have been finding school a challenge for years.

Each new student is assessed at Arrowsmith School so that we may identify his or her individual learning profile and then design a program of cognitive exercises for that student. Information about the assessment process may be found on the Assessment page of our web site.

Our program has been of benefit for students having difficulty with reading, writing and mathematics, comprehension, logical reasoning, problem solving, visual and auditory memory, non-verbal learning, attention, processing speed and dyslexia. For an overview of the more common problems addressed please read our Chart of Learning Outcomes.

Our goal is for our students to become effective, confident and self-directed learners for life and to enable them to achieve their goals of academic and career success.

Thank-you for visiting our web site and we hope that you find it informative and helpful.
