Students in the Upper School at Stone Ridge are encouraged to become independent learners, who are self-aware and able to self-advocate. Most academic support in Upper School is provided through classroom differentiation and direct extra help from faculty. Students make appointments to see their teachers during free periods, break, lunch, before school, and after school. When additional learning support is necessary, learning specialists will assist in determining a course of action.
