The Arrowsmith Program deals with the root causes of a learning difficulties, rather than managing its symptoms. Our goal is for children to become effective, confident and self-directed learners for life.

Arrowsmith School is an independent co-educational and non-denominational day school headquartered in mid-town Peterborough. We offer both full time and part time programs with the sole purpose of helping individuals of all ages with specific learning difficulties.
