Our goal is to provide a safe, nurturing coeducational learning environment that balances gifted education with remedial education while integrating social, emotional and behavioral support for the middle school or high school student who may not fully express his gifts and talents because of a specific learning disability or related health impairment.

our philosophy

​​​​​​At TIDE, we believe every student deserves to be taught in the way he best learns.  Education should empower the student to conquer his anxieties, overcome his challenges, polish his gifts, and reach his full potential.
