Welcome Prospective Families! 

Our Admissions team is committed to supporting you and your family as you navigate the process of finding the best educational program for your student. 

Armstrong is life changing. Every student on our campus has a diagnosis of dyslexia, allowing our students to build empathy and feel seen.  Our teachers and support staff truly get our kids. 

Armstrong has a holistic admissions process. We understand the many paths and learning journeys that brought you to our wonderful community of bright, creative, and engaged learners. 

I love being part of a team that truly understands the dyslexic learner and look forward to showing you our campus, discussing our intervention programs, showing off our fabulous arts, sports and specialty spaces, and meeting you at our various admissions events throughout the school year. 

Warm Regards,

Brian Barish, Director of Admissions

8th Grade Parent

When we came to you in second grade, we were welcomed with open arms into a loving community who understood us, our story, and our needs better than anybody else ever could. Every single person at the school, from the PE department, to library, to art, to movement, to the office and administration has welcomed us and loved my child, and given her the tools she needed to succeed. 
You have supported me as a parent as well, and I am eternally grateful.
