State Legislators Say NJ Schools Are Marginalizing Parent VoicesJuly 11, 2023
The Newgrange School (Laurel Education Group) is pleased to announce that starting September 2023, it will be launching a pilot program for twice exceptional learners.
The Newgrange School is a state-approved private school for children with disabilities and special needs. It features small class sizes led by highly-trained, caring teachers, in which students are grouped by ability versus chronological age. School leadership identified early on a small subset of students who were twice exceptional (intellectually-gifted with one or more co-occurring disabilities), and committed itself to building a successful environment to meet the needs of this extraordinary population.
The Newgrange School 2e Leadership Team is comprised of administrators James Sheeley, Amy Deutsch and Dana Morris, and teachers Julia Parada and Monica Bruder, who are currently completing coursework on the Schoolwide Enrichment Model through the Renzulli Center for Creativity, Gifted Education, and Talent Development. Staff Developer Allison Park was recently named NJAGC’s 2023 Parent of the Year.
In addition to professional learning and development, The Newgrange School maintains a strong school-wide focus on building character and community. Every day at school is a new adventure in which students enjoy a multisensory environment that is academically rigorous and nurtures the development of the whole child.
