Senior Education Policy Analyst Ross Izard profiles the Havern School for Children with Learning Disabilities, a private K-8 school in Littleton designed to give children with learning disabilities the skills they need to succeed in school and in life.
Havern’s intervention model, rich history, and tight-knit community form the foundations of a truly inspirational school. Yet to fully understand Havern, one has to understand the powerful human stories behind it. Ross’s profile offers a unique, personal perspective on the school, its students, and the dedicated teachers and leaders who make it work.
“Intervening for Success” is the second profile in Ross’s popular Profiles in Private Education series. His first profile, “Building Hope,” chronicles his experiences at Arrupe Jesuit High School in west Denver.
