A new school for students with dyslexia and other learning disabilities will open in Hattiesburg in August 2015.
The TIDE School will serve students with average to high intellectual ability that experience learning challenges. These challenges range from dyslexia to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder to anxiety. The school will serve students in grades seven through nine for the 2015-2016 school year and will add tenth grade the following school year.
To be eligible for enrollment, students must have a diagnosis of a learning disorder and be working toward a regular high school graduation. Interested parents can find more information on enrollment and tuition fees
The TIDE School is located at 120 South 25th Avenue in Hattiesburg.
"At TIDE, we believe every student deserves to be taught in the way he best learns," said TIDE administrators. "Education should empower the student to conquer his anxieties, overcome his challenges, polish his gifts, and reach his full potential."
