Our Staff of Dedicated and Patient Education Professionals

At Barnstable, we value teachers who are skillful and patient, with varied backgrounds and experience in order to maximize teaching strategies. We believe that teachers are the single most important factor in a successful education, and so are extremely discerning when it comes to hiring.

Personal attention and tailored teaching

With an average class size of 10 students, teachers can provide personal attention and address each student’s unique strengths and weaknesses. Our teachers utilize auditory, visual, and exploratory teaching methods to meet the needs of their students and help them stay engaged. We also use technology in the classroom to promote teacher/student collaborate and incorporate executive function skill-building into all of our classes.
