Siena is known for providing
remediation through daily reading
classes offering explicit, systematic
instruction in the five essential skills
identified by the National Read-
ing Panel: phonemic awareness,
phonics, fluency, vocabulary and
comprehension. Our focus is bright,
creative, college-bound students in
grades 4-12, with mild to moderate
language-based learning differences.
At Siena, a critical component of our
engaging and successful learning
environment is the value we place
on an interdisciplinary curriculum,
packed with experiential learning
and integrated arts. Siena’s arts
program includes substantial experiences in the fine and performing arts. Courses in history and lit-
erature are connected thematically and topically, and other subjects draw on the themes and topics
covered in the humanities. Through highly individualized, research-based, multisensory instruction
and curriculum-related field trips, our students develop critical thinking skills and acquire the tools
and strategies needed to become successful and independent learners, prepared for college.
The Siena School is conveniently located on Forest Glen Road in Silver Spring, off the Beltway, just
past Holy Cross Hospital and near the Forest Glen Metro station.
