  • Insider Reviews & Perspectives

    The Our Kids review of The Gow School Summer Program

    our take

    Peter Gow founded the Gow School in the 1920s to serve students who, for a range of reasons, weren’t finding success elsewhere. Gow believed that small class sizes and an open mind, when it comes to instruction, can make all the difference, especially for those who are at risk of falling through the cracks of a traditional approach to academics. The students at the top of his mind were those with some form of linguistic disruption—students with dyslexia, dysgraphia, dyspraxia or issues with central auditory processing. The program has changed over the years, though the spirit of investigation, of finding better ways to support learners, remains. The summer programs extend all of that work, allowing campers to experience a supportive learning and play environment surrounded by true peers and a staff that truly understands them. That in itself can be transformational. The summer is for fun, so while there is some learning, it’s meant to help with the summer academic dip, helping to deliver students back to class in September ready to learn. But, yes, fun and activity is a primary goal, and the summer sessions bring that, too.
