Students in New Avenues are excited to learn and receive daily small-group instruction utilizing the Orton-Gillingham approach. This evidence-based structured literacy approach uses explicit, multisensory and systemic instruction. New Avenues students are part of the larger Walker School community and participate with their grade-level peers in co-curricular activities including art, science, music, technology, PE, recess and lunch. A unique “school within a school” model promotes positive social interactions and provides all students with a broad social base.; 770-427-2689.
