Tucker-Maxon also focuses on social and emotional learning.  We teach children empathy, to value differences and emotional intelligence.

Parents choose Tucker-Maxon School because of our small class sizes and the attention every student receives from their teachers.  Our current student-to-teacher ratio averages 8:1 allowing teachers to know every child and focus on their social, emotional and academic success. Regular art, music and PE classes augment our focus on building communication, problem-solving and scholastic achievement. On-site audiology and speech-language pathology provide assessment and assistance for children with cochlear implants and hearing aids. Our collaborative, family-centered approach develops children’s listening and speaking abilities while supporting the family in providing a language-rich environment at home.

Tucker-Maxon has been ranked among the top schools in the country and valued for its innovative service and dedication to teaching children to speak, learn, laugh, and sing together! Why Parents Choose Tucker-Maxon.
