Ampersand School | McKay & Gardiner Provider Seminole County | K - 12th Grade www.ampersandschool.com Maitland, FL 32751 Contact: Shydonna Tossie, 407-960-7994, sayhello@ampersandschool.com The first and foremost goal of the Ampersand School is for all of our students to be happy, and to enjoy their time in our learning environment. We push our students to learn because they need to know it in order to accomplish their greater goal. When teaching a new concept or introducing a new subject, it is imperative to connect it to something real – such as a person or an event that currently exists – and then use that concrete example to lead into the abstract concept. We help students relate the material to something they’ve experienced, so they are substantially more likely to remember the concepts. And, when they can recall the concepts as opposed to blindly memorizing dates, people, and events, they actually learn something. Ampersand’s inclusive program serves both typical and special needs students.
