A Message from our Head of School 

Dr. Debbie Hargett 

Students with dyslexia learn differently, and at Greengate, we teach the way they learn. We provide a rich, individualized, and structured learning environment that allows our students to gain confidence in their abilities to learn, and in turn, leads to improvement in their self-esteem and self-awareness.

Greengate educates talented and bright students with dyslexia by addressing both their intellectual strengths and their learning needs. We utilize the Orton Gillingham approach, a multi-sensory, research-based method to develop reading, writing, and spelling skills.

Our primary focus is our students. From daily, individualized tutorials, to challenging content classes, art, music, and physical education, our highly trained faculty and staff strive to enable students to become problem-solvers, to think creatively, work collaboratively, and to be their own advocate. As many parents have said, Greengate “changes lives” of the students we serve.

We welcome you to visit our school, and see for yourself the difference Greengate School can make!
