Since its founding in 1959, The Schenck School is fortunate to have received a remarkable level of support from those committed to the School’s mission.
Sharing a journey with a very specific group of students who are helped to move beyond and overcome their difficulties in reading and written expressions is enriching for all who are a part of the School community.
The outstanding faculty, superior resources and exceptional campus would not be possible without support. Today, about 15 percent of the operating budget comes from voluntary support – a combination of funds raised for current operations through the annual fund and special events, and income from gifts that are endowed.
The trustees, administrators, faculty and students recognize and deeply appreciate the many ways that our donors and volunteers contribute to the life of the School. The magnificent support of our friends ensures The Schenck School will always be an important educational asset to Atlanta and the United States.
I was absolutely FLOORED by the story my son wrote. It is nearly impossible to believe that this is the same boy who did not know the sounds of the letters (or in fact many of the letters) just one year ago. Not only has he learned a lot academically, he clearly has gained the confidence to use writing along with drawing as a way to express his many ideas. In fact, he is so confident about his reading that he only wants to buy 'teenager' books, since he told me, "Mom, I can read this." Most importantly though, with this confidence has come a sense of happiness and contentment."Excerpt from a Schenck School Parent Letter
The most important lesson that I have ever learned is that it's a wonderful thing to be different and that your worst traits might end up being your best qualities. I learned that from being dyslexic."Alumna of The Schenck School
