About the QPHS Resource Room

P1010720In September 2009, Queen of Peace began a new program designed to address the needs of college-bound students who have mild learning disabilities.  This goal is pursued in an environment of structure, encouragement and instruction.

Since our Resource Room students are mainstreamed into the regular college preparatory course of studies, learning support is the integral component of the program.

Coordination of the Resource Room is handled by Mrs. Lori Flynn.  For more information on the Resource Room or if you have any questions, call 201-998-8227 x 233 or lflynn@qphs.org.
