Gesher prides itself on providing its students with the academic support they need. We value independence, advocacy skills, study skills, and executive functioning skills. We also value meeting our students where they are and focusing on a growth mindset. The way we do this takes many forms but often includes support or intervention from our SST team.
What is SST? SST stands for Student Support Team.
Our student support team includes two learning specialists and our guidance counselor. They collaborate with each other as well as our classroom teachers and our administrative staff to support the academic, social, and emotional needs of our students that may go beyond those met through standard classroom practices. Depending on the grade level and needs, these students may be served through a push in or pull out model.

What is a Learning Profile?
Learning Profiles, or LPs are usually 1-2 page documents that summarize a student’s strengths, accommodations, and next steps both for school and home. LPs are utilized in private schools as an alternative to Individualized Education Plans (IEPs) or 504 Plans which are primarily public school documents. LPs are reviewed and signed by teachers annually as an agreement to provide the outlined accommodations to that student.
