 Learning Assistance

The learning assistance program at Constable Neil Bruce Middle School is designed to support those students who need extra help to be successful in the regular academic program. If you have concerns about your child’s academic performance, your first step is to contact the teacher. In many cases, teachers can assist students in becoming more successful. If teachers have concerns, they refer students to the learning assistance teacher. Then the student is tested to see where they are in terms of their academic achievement. A course of action is planned using this information. 

If you have any questions about learning assistance at Constable Neil Bruce Middle School, please contact the school.
