Private school for children with learning differences
Welcome to TLC's Katherine Thomas School, an independent day school located in Rockville, Maryland. We have been empowering students with learning differences in Preschool - 12th grade since 1995. KTS provides an exceptional educational experience to children with language and learning disabilities, autism, intellectual disabilities, and/or other health impairments.
We serve over 130 students, both publicly funded and private pay, from Maryland, DC and Northern Virginia. The Katherine Thomas School holds certificates of approval from the Maryland State Department of Education (MSDE) and The Office of the State Superintendent of Education (OSSE) for Washington, DC. Our language-intensive curriculum includes the full range of courses mandated by the State of Maryland or other funding jurisdictions. We make extensive use of assistive technology, and our 50,000 square foot school is home to a Black Box Theatre, two music rooms, three fully equipped OT gyms, a teaching kitchen, and two art classrooms with a kiln.
