Access and Instructional Supports
The NLCPHS Department for Academic Access and Instructional Support (DAIS) consists of committed individuals who believe in the ability of our students and the mission of our school.
We believe every student is endowed with their own special talents. Using those talents, we engage, motivate and nurture their individual abilities and guide them towards growth while providing a safe, healthy, and structured environment.
We believe ALL students deserve a rigorous education. We believe each student should be challenged through the process of inquiry while being offered opportunity and choice. We create quality learning environments by building relationships that empower their sense of learning.
We believe in building growth mindsets. We teach specific skills that will enable them to problem solve in school and in real-life experiences.
We believe in positive relationships. We strive to build partnerships with families to best support the success of our scholars. We encourage our students to be resilient – even in the face of adversity.
Diverse in our educational expertise, we provide a wide range of instructional, philosophical, and emotional support. Together as a team we are focused on one common goal – helping our students achieve post-secondary education and independent living skills. We believe that ‘success’ is a culmination of planning, partnership and vision.
