The Newgrange School


The Newgrange School, located at 526 South Olden Avenue in Hamilton, is a co-educational day school for students with learning disabilities. Newgrange provides a highly specialized educational program for students ages 7 through 21 with language-based and other learning disabilities. The Newgrange School is an approved State of New Jersey Department of Education private school eligible to receive tuition funding from public school systems.

Newgrange faculty members are highly qualified and are trained and experienced in teaching students with learning disabilities. Newgrange students are provided the individualized instruction needed to achieve academic success. The Newgrange staff includes Learning Disability Teacher/Consultants, Speech/Language Pathologists, Social Workers, Teachers of the Handicapped, Teachers of Math, Science, Social Studies, Art, Music, and Physical Education/Health/Drivers Education. The faculty participates in professional development and continuing education programs on a regular basis. Our specialized training includes: Orton Gillingham, Wilson Language Training, Developing Metacognitive Skills, LETRS, Project Read, and other multisensory teaching methods.

The cornerstone of the curriculum at Newgrange is reading, language arts, and social skills instruction. In addition to daily, intensive remedial instruction for reading in small groups, each student participates in a language enrichment class to ensure that all aspects of the language arts (spelling, writing and oral expression) are addressed daily. Many students are also assigned individual tutorials for reading or written expression during the week. Mathematics, art/computer class, music, science, social studies, physical education/health, study and social skills and a transitions program for the high school students complete our program of study.
