"Glendale Academy Established in 2003" IGCSE center no.IN639 CBSE/ Aff./ 130195/ 27-07-2006

An environment that engages, challenges and influences brain development is one that makes use of ‘experimental learning’

At Glendale, the children go beyond the pedantic, stretching their imagination and acquire problem-solving and creative thinking skills. Glendale's aim is to see that our wards grow up with strong core values, with refined social conditioning and a peace-loving, spiritual demeanor. To achieve this aim we have our uniquely designed studios and centres. Have a peek..

Glendale Academy was the first to introduce Remedial Resource Room for providing special remedial education services for children with learning challenges and difficulties. Instruction is provided individually or in a small group over instructional periods three times per week.


Learning in a Resource Room Setting

Goals and Objectives

  • All teaching activities follow the Glendale Academy International Curriculum Framework, with Special Education teachers modifying the content and style of instruction according to the student needs
  • Teachers focus on remedial instruction in reading, written language, organization, math, study skills or other basic skills in need of improvement.
  • Additional support in organizing long term projects, writing term papers, tests, and/or practicing newly learned skills may supplement content instruction for some students which is often referred to as academic support.

Inclusion Program

Inclusion classes are regular education classes where students receive instruction based on the Glendale Academy International Curriculum Framework and there is regular consultation between general education teachers and the Special Education teacher.

Specialized Instruction

Reading instruction in the resource room is designed to meet the needs of each individual learner. Often the student benefits from a structured phonetic approach along with the development of his/her sight word vocabulary. To aid comprehension the children are taught to visualize the events in a story and to ask questions as they read along.

In the resource room students receive a modified math program. They work toward the same major goals of the Everyday Math Program used in the regular classroom, but they move at a different pace and sometimes with smaller numbers. Children in the Learning Place benefit from small group instruction based on their individual needs in each subject area.

Progress Report

In the academic year 2012-2013 the Resource Room successfully supported about 34 children from primary and secondary sections. 98% of the children cleared all papers in the exams. It was also observed that there was a boost in self-confidence among the children, which resulted in 100% participation in many co - curricular activities. Many even went on to winning awards for the school.

In the academic year 2013-2014, there were 42 children from Pre- primary to Senior Grades. About 25% of the children were weaned off from the program which would only require monitoring. Students who opted for CBSE Concessions passed with a grade scale above 7.

Occupational Therapy

Occupational therapy with a sensory integration approach typically takes place in a sensory-rich environment sometimes called the "OT gym" During OT sessions, the therapist guides the child through fun activities that are subtly structured, so the child is constantly challenged but always successful.

Pre- Primary students will be informally assessed and intervention based in school and home will be done. Hand writing module will also be started during this academic year (2014-2015)


The Sensory Integration Department was opened in the school campus in the year 2013-2014 for children with sensory issues. An Occupational therapist supports these children. Glendale Academy International is the only school in Hyderabad who is providing Sensory Integration Therapy along with remedial education.

Parent and Teacher Meeting

The Remedial Resource Room Team will meet the parents of the children with learning challenges every month over a teatime talk and also during parent teacher meeting. All parents are requested to meet the remedial consultant and cooperate with the teachers in the overall development of the child.
