William Floyd Learning Center

Launched in 2017, the William Floyd Learning Center is an alternative elementary school program that serves approximately 80 elementary-aged students (kindergarten through fifth grade) in need of a more intensive building-wide management system and a smaller student-to-teacher ratio. The William Floyd Learning Center is committed to developing young scholars with active and creative minds to become compassionate and caring life-long learners. Through positive behavioral supports and rigorous classroom instruction we will stress the total development of each scholar: socially, emotionally and academically.
