What Makes Us Different
Hirsch is guided by the voices and input from the neurodivergent community who share the same sensory, movement, and communication differences as our students. Our dedicated staff presume competence, teaching age level or above curriculum that follows Common Core and Georgia Standards and accredited by the Georgia Accrediting Commission.
With uniquely trained staff, cutting edge technology, individualized curriculum, and a 2 -1 student-to-teacher ratio, we enable our neurodivergent students to engage and connect with others and be autonomous problem solvers and learners.
Hirsch utilizes differentiated learning methods and communication tools, such as Universal Design for Learning and Alternative and Augmentative Communication (AAC) access to support all learning and communication styles. In addition to being immersed in Common Core curriculum, students also participate in classes such as: STEM, Philosophy, Critical Thinking, Drama, Art, Music Theory, Blog Writing, Creative Writing, Counseling, Physical Education, Poetry, Chess, Caporeira, Yoga, Mindfulness, Media Production and Outdoor Recreation.
