Welcome to the Claremont School

Situated on Danforth Avenue in Toronto, Ontario, Claremont School is the only elementary co-educational school dedicated exclusively to the teaching of students with dyslexia from Grades 1 – 8. We offer a tailored curriculum designed by a Fellow of the Orton-Gillingham Academy for specific and intense remediation of reading, writing, and math skills. Our aim is to empower dyslexic students and prepare them for success in the mainstream once strong foundational knowledge is acquired, and to do so in the most effective and efficient manner.

If you would like a personal tour of Claremont School, please call or email your request via the Contact Us page.
Tours take place on the first Wednesday of every month (except January) between 1:30 p.m. – 3:00 p.m.

Private schools for children with learning disabilities such as dyslexia can provide a ‘specific, well-defined mission’ to help ensure that students ‘gain the skills and self-confidence needed for academic success,’ says Evelyn Reiss, president of the Canadian Dyslexia Society and principal of the Claremont School in Toronto.

“Neil is a different boy from a year ago, not only because his reading is starting to come along, but because he is enjoying school and, once again, believes he can learn and succeed. Honestly, the Claremont School has been a god-send for Neil.”

A warm and exceptional teacher, Evelyn provided a wonderful overview of the Orton-Gillingham approach in her Associate Level course. I consider it a privilege to have been her student.
