Leadership Letters

From our Superintendent: Every child can learn

Dear Parents, Colleagues, and Friends:

When it comes to learning, every child is different. At the Biondi Education Center, we recognize the differences and tailor each child’s individual educational experience to build on his or her strengths. If your child is struggling in school, consider Biondi so that your child’s instructional and therapeutic needs are met.

Biondi has the expertise and experience to provide your child with an academic plan that is aligned with their Individualized Education Program (IEP) goals. We accommodate different learning styles, emphasize programs that are student-centered, and engage all students to be active participants in their learning. With the parent’s input, we set achievable academic and emotional objectives. In other words, we work collaboratively with the child and parent to ensure successful outcomes.

Our therapeutic supports are outstanding. Through individual and group therapy, our clinicians help students identify the fear, anger, or despair that often drives an impacted student’s emotional state. Our evidence-based interventions help students work through trauma and gain a strong and positive sense of themselves.

In this very positive setting, our students not only thrive, they also succeed.That is why 100% of our high school graduates go on to college, employment, or training programs after they leave Biondi.

Every day, Biondi transforms struggling students into active learners. Please come and visit, and see for yourself how a caring and cohesive team of professionals can unlock your child’s abilities so that he/she can achieve academic success.

Warmest regards,

Angela White, Ed.D.

From our Superintendent: Every child can learnFrom the Elementary Principal: A strong and positive sense of self

Dear Parents, Colleagues, and Friends:

Someone once said, it takes a village to raise a child. That’s true. As part of your child’s village, our dedicated team of professionals is here to help students overcome barriers to learning. We are here to help every student succeed in his or her own individual way.

Parents, we are your partners. At Biondi Elementary School, faculty, clinicians, and staff work closely with parents to build a foundation of support for each student. By using the appropriate therapeutic and academic approaches for your child, we tailor the learning environment to suit students’ needs so that they may thrive.

We believe in every child, and it’s only a matter of time before they begin to believe in themselves. It’s amazing to watch students succeed and grow at Biondi. We validate their strengths and feelings, catch them before they fall, and celebrate their achievements every day.

Here at Biondi, we incorporate evidence-based methods and therapeutic practice to prepare and encourage our students to participate in class, study and have positive interactions with classmates. Students are inspired to focus on achieving their academic and behavioral goals while conducting themselves with respect.

I am confident that we have the resources necessary to make your child’s learning experience a positive one. My office door is always open, and I would be happy to welcome you on a visit to our school.

From our Secondary Principal: Enroll your child in a rich educational experience

Dear Parents, Colleagues, and Friends:

Adolescence is a challenging time for students. That’s why a supportive environment is so important for middle and high school students with learning and emotional challenges.

Many new students enter Biondi several grade levels behind in reading and math. Our positive environment and the unwavering dedication of our faculty and staff help our students overcome their academic deficits, build their self-confidence, and chart a path to a solid future. Students leave Biondi prepared with the academic and vocational tools they need to enter college and career.

Our students enjoy a rich educational experience inside the classroom and out. We offer a full academic program and ancillary academic support to build literacy, mathematical, and critical thinking skills. When they complete school, 100% of our graduates enter college, employment, or further training.

I am always happy to talk to parents and guardians about how the Biondi Middle and High School can provide hope and opportunities for their children’s future. Please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

With warmest wishes,

Marya Baker
Principal, Biondi Middle & High School
