Greetings from South Wales,

We are so pleased that you are considering Gow. Most families come to us seeking answers. They want to find the right place for their child to inspire learning, realize lofty goals, and accomplish more than they ever imagined. We hope that place will be Gow.

Structured to fit the needs of students with language-based learning disabilities such as dyslexia, dyscalculia, auditory processing disorder, and dysgraphia, students often start to advance quickly and gain the skills and foundation that prepare them to succeed in college and in their future careers.  At Gow, their peers will understand their learning styles and faculty will leverage and believe in their strengths.  

Finding the right school makes all the difference, and when there is a fit, magic happens in the classroom, on the field, in the art studio, and in the dorm. To determine if Gow is the answer, please give us a call. We hope you will come for an on-campus interview and tour our beautiful Western New York campus and meet the faculty, staff, and students who provide its spark. But wait, we're getting ahed of ourselves. First, let’s talk.

Meet our Students

“At my old school, teachers didn't get me or my learning style. For the first time, at Gow, my teachers get me. The small class sizes and teacher and student connections, make me feel comfortable to ask questions in class instead of hiding in the back of the room.”

“Starting in The Gow School Summer Program really gave me the head start I needed. I was able to get comfortable with the teachers, campus, and living far from home, so when I moved in for the school year, I was confident and able to show other kids the ropes."

“Dyslexia runs in my family, but I always got good grades and loved school, so my parents never thought to get me tested. One day, school got really hard and no matter how hard I tried, I couldn't earn the grades that I had just last year. I finally got tested and discovered I was dyslexic, just like my brother, Jude '19."

“At my old school, I struggled a lot and used to always hide in the back to avoid being called on. Fast forward five years and I am now the Student Council President. Gow gave me my confidence."
