About This School

The Siena School prepares bright, college-bound students with language-based learning differences, such as dyslexia, to become confident, curious learners who understand their personal strengths and gain the tools and strategies to excel.

To accomplish this mission, The Siena School:
Focuses on individual student learning strengths and gifts;
Ensures highly individualized and personalized instructional attention;
Employs research-based and multisensory instructional techniques;
Provides appropriate curricular accommodations and adaptations to allow all students to access a rigorous curriculum of high standards; and
Uses the very best research, resources, strategies and staff to be a national model for educating students with language-based learning differences.
Our program is designed for students with mild to moderate needs who experience a discrepancy between their intellectual abilities and academic achievement in one or more areas such as reading, writing, oral expression or math.

Siena is only equipped to serve students that are emotionally healthy and behaviorally appropriate. While some of our students may exhibit mild Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), we are unable to serve students with more significant emotional or behavioral challenges. Learning needs, not emotional or behavioral issues, are the primary focus for our students.

Siena’s commitment to diversity is consistent with our focus on serving students with diverse learning styles. Siena encourages applications from students of all backgrounds. Only by maintaining a diverse school community can we provide the richest possible learning experience for our students. The Siena School applies all policies and procedures, including admissions, equally to all students and does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, socio-economic status, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin.
The Siena School is located in Silver Spring, MD. It is a private, special education school that serves 110 students in grades 4-12. The Siena School is coed (school has male and female students) and is nonsectarian in orientation.

In 2015, The Siena School had 10 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Maryland average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.
