    Is reading more difficult for your child than other subjects?

    The program, located at the former Palm Harbor Elementary School, will provide a systematic, multisensory, structured approach to literacy instruction. Students will have opportunities for remediation in reading, writing and math, and schoolwide enrichment will be provided.



    Please note: Students can apply from throughout the county, however, transportation will only be provided to students who live in the North County application area.


    Students who live in the North County application area are zoned for the following middle schools: Dunedin Highland, Joseph Carwise, Palm Harbor, Safety Harbor, Tarpon Springs. To find your zoned school, visit
