Our History

Read all about Tampa Day School’s long history of success.

Achieving success with ADHD and Dyslexia Education for 45 years.

Traditional education is largely built around a one-size-fits-all approach. It works for many students, but by no means for all. Learning styles come in all shapes…and Tampa Day School adapts to fit them.

Established in 1970, Tampa Day School has a 45-year legacy of successful ADHD and Dyslexia education in the Tampa Bay Area. We have achieved that reputation by staying true to a simple mission: to educate—one child at a time. This innovative private school was created to give parents of children who learn differently a powerful ally in their search for educational solutions. Tampa Day School is accredited by the Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).

At TDS, we’re passionate in our belief that success lives within each child. It is our joy, challenge, and responsibility to seek out, identify, and adapt to each individual learning style in order to create the “best fit” for the child. By creating an environment of success and promoting high academic standards for every child…it all takes shape!

Children are capable of great things when teachers truly understand what makes them tick, and give them the individualized attention they need. Students who learn differently benefit from our smaller class sizes and personalized approach to teaching. Children go from just surviving, to thriving. We nurture success by promoting high K-8 academic standards for every child, and forging a clear path to later achievement in high school, college, and beyond.
