The Learning Resource Center
Glenwood first developed the Learning Resource Center (LRC) to serve the special learning needs of students accepted for admission who need individualized or small group instruction in order to meet their academic potential. Over 50 percent of Glenwood students experience gaps in knowledge due to learning disabilities, frequent school changes and/or attending a low-performing, under-funded school. The LRC provides diagnostic, academic, speech, enrichment and remedial services for students as well as helps regular classroom teachers modify instruction to each child’s particular learning style. Through Glenwood’s Learning Resource Center, students experience academic gains ranging from 6 – 12 months in deficient areas such as math, reading, and language arts within their first year of enrollment and continue to make gains throughout their stay.
