Tailor-made teaching

Q&A with Sandi Wollum

Differentiated instruction -- teaching tailored to students' different learning styles and levels -- is an educational concept that has been around for decades. It is a concept that is embraced by most schools in theory -- and varying degrees of practice.

Because it is essential for gifted children to have a program designed to address their individual characteristics, needs, abilities, and interests, differentiating curriculum so that each child is appropriately challenged is at the core of Seabury School's mission.

Learn more about differentiated instruction at Seabury in this Q&A with Head of School Sandi Wollum.
