The Gow School

We are a school about language. Begun in 1926, Gow was the nation’s first school for dyslexics. Many other specialty schools can trace their roots to the groundbreaking work of our founder, Peter Gow, Jr., and Samuel T. Orton. Today their pioneering spirit continues in our experienced teaching team, who are fiercely dedicated to our research-driven remediation program and to their students’ futures. In small classes that foster personalized instruction, students become stronger readers and more confident writers. In fact, confidence is a natural outgrowth of language improvement (usually apparent shortly after arrival) and our culture of success.

We are about college preparation. That’s right. Your family may not be thinking beyond high school now, but we are. Just as Gow students make gains fast, so they keep gaining until they finish—strongly—at Gow and beyond. We pride ourselves on helping students develop what they need academically, socially, and emotionally—strategies to deal with their learning differences, knowledge across our academic curriculum, and qualities such as focus, work ethic, drive, and self-discipline—to go to and through college and achieve their goals.

This year’s Open House will be on Saturday, October 5th from 9:30 a.m.- 12:00 p.m. Come speak with our current students, take a tour of campus, and hear from the Director of Admissions why Gow could be the school for you. With limited spots available, we ask that you RSVP to this event.

About Gow

Since 1926, Gow has been internationally renowned as an outstanding school for dyslexic boys. With the addition of girls and our program’s continuing evolution, Gow has maintained that position. We continue to help dyslexic students rediscover their learning abilities and reignite their lives.

Whom We Serve

Gow specializes in the remediation of dyslexia (reading problems) and related language-based learning disabilities. It is common for our students to have attention (ADD or ADHD) and/or executive function difficulties. Other diagnoses may include dyspraxia, CAPD (central auditory processing disorder), dyscalculiadysgraphia, and disorder of written expression. Additional language support is offered for English Language Learners (ELL).
