YOUNGSTOWN — Summit Academy Youngstown Elementary, 144 N. Schenley Ave., announced openings for local families with children in grades K-7, particularly those seeking special education.
“Making sure students are able to learn and have all the tools for this to happen is what separates us from the traditional schools,” Principal Mike Majzun said in a news release. He said autistic students, as well as children with ADHD and other special education needs, make up about 70 percent of the school’s student body.
Summit Academy Youngstown Elementary, a tuition-free, nonprofit school, has two educators in each classroom. The school provides its students with Saturday tutoring, supplemental weekly assistance with English-language arts and mathematics, basketball teams for children in grades four through six, a dance team, student plays, a Science of Reading program, onsite counseling through the Village Network, a rewards program for positive behavior and quarterly family nights, according to the release.
“Summit Academy Youngstown Elementary is more than just a school. Administration and staff truly care about each and every student who walks through our doors,” Majzun said. “We do everything within our capabilities to make sure each student is safe and receives the best education they deserve.”
