learning resource center
At St. Luke School we recognize that each child is unique, and we celebrate that all students have varied learning styles with their own strengths and challenges. Our experienced teachers employ a variety of strategies to ensure that learners
demonstrate academic growth to promote student achievement and success.
Slingerland, Wired for Reading, and Multi-Sensory techniques are used in the lower grades for language and literacy development. The Learning Resource Specialist works with teachers Pre-K through Grade 8 to support individual student needs and the implementation of recommended classroom accommodations.
Based on an assessed tiered level of need, some students may work outside of the classroom one on one or in small groups. Using a team approach, our staff works closely with parents and outside professionals to ensure that each student’s individual learning needs are met. As students progress through the grades, they learn skills and strategies to become their own best self-advocates for reaching
their personal life goals.

The Developmental Assets® Framework
Search Institute has identified 40 positive supports and strengths that young people need to succeed. Half of the assets focus on the relationships and opportunities they need in their families, schools, and communities (external assets). The remaining assets focus on the social-emotional strengths, values, and commitments that are nurtured within young people (internal assets).
