Learning differences (LD) affect about one person in seven. When Dallas families believe their children could be among this number, they turn to Shelton, the largest private school worldwide serving intelligent children who think and learn differently. Shelton is a recognized leader in LD education serving students EC – Grade 12. While the school is the largest of its kind, it creates a small and nurturing climate within four school divisions, each staffed by faculty whose expertise and experience best match Shelton’s student population.

​Shelton offers a full range of experiences in academics, athletics, arts, music and theater in order to cultivate the unique gifts and talents of the creative, intelligent (average IQ and above), progressive and resilient students it serves.

Dyslexia, ADHD, and speech and language disorders are some of the learning differences that bring students to Shelton. Shelton offers its effective curriculum through individualized, structured multisensory programs that best address their needs, as well as an extensive summer program.

​Shelton also has a speech / language / hearing clinic, an evaluation center, and an outreach / training center, all open to the community. In addition, Shelton is a national demonstration, training and referral center for educators, parents, physicians, psychologists, and student interns.​

Since 1976 Shelton has been the turning point for thousands of students who thrive and succeed.
