Ribbon Cutting Held for NFDL "Treffert Way" Charter School


The School District of North Fond du Lac held a ribbon cutting for its new Charter School Tuesday night. The Treffert Way for the Exceptional Mind is a school targeted toward diverse learners, and is built on the six-step philosophy set forth by Dr. Darold Treffert, of Agnesian Health Care’s Treffert Center, who has been studying autism and savant syndrome for more than 50 years.

Superintendent Aaron Sadoff tells us the culture of the school is very accepting – and focused on each student’s unique talent and way of learning. Sadoff says the students, and parents have responded well to that type of atmosphere. “These kids, when they come to a place where they are accepted, and they feel they can really ‘hone in’ on that talent and don’t have to worry about what they don’t do well, or get in trouble because they’re frustrated with an area – they love it,” Sadoff said. “And their parents really realize that – ‘you know what, I’ve really struggled to find a home for my child where they feel that they’re accepted and their talents flourish’ – and that’s what this is all about.”

The Treffert Way school currently serves Kindergarten through 6th grade and is at maximum enrollment of 40 students. Sadoff tells us that the goal is for the school to be able to build and move into its own building in the future. The school currently operates in a portion of Friendship Learning Center in North Fond du Lac.
