The Kildonan School is a leading coeducational, independent college-preparatory school for students with dyslexia and language-based learning differences in grades 2 through 12, PG, offering both day and boarding options. Kildonan's founder, Diana Hanbury King, is an educational pioneer. She established Kildonan for students with average to above-average intelligence who struggle with dyslexia and language-based learning differences in 1969, a time when few understood the meaning of these words. While Kildonan has grown to meet the changing needs of our students, we are as committed to Diana's singular mission today as when it was founded more than 40 years ago.
Our mission is to empower students by increasing their self-esteem and motivation. Kildonan is unique in that each of our students receive daily 1:1 Orton-Gillingham language skills tutoring which meets the child at the level of their individual need. In addition, Kildonan offers small, college-preparatory, innovative subject matter classes, extensive fine arts, music and design experiences, and competitive athletic teams. 100% of our graduates are accepted to a wide range of colleges and universities throughout the country and Canada.
