New principal appointed at Prentice School

March 24, 2017 by  

The Prentice School, a nonprofit, private, nonpublic school that addresses student with learning difficulties, has a new principal at the helm.

Following 20 years in the field of education, Christopher Sanita has accepted the position of principal of The Prentice School in North Tustin. Officially taking up his position on Monday, March 20, Sanita was last employed at Whittier Christian High School where over the last 12 years he has served as Director of Curriculum and Instruction, Vice President/Dean of Students, and a literature teacher.

The Prentice School Director of Enrollment, Devon Green, explained the mission of the school as helping bright children fulfill their potential, despite the challenges presented by their learning differences. Among the conditions focused on are ADHD, anxiety, dyscalculia, dysgraphia and dyslexia, as well as executive and visual processing disorders.

Located about three miles from Tustin, The Prentice School has been certified via the California Department of Education as a nonpublic school, with full accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. Founded in 1986, the school’s approach to teaching follows three paths: auditory, kinesthetic, and visual.

As educational choices expand, printing companies are called upon to create brochures to familiarize families of prospective students with what a school offers. In the case of The Prentice School, students with average to high IQs for whom the traditional classroom experience has failed are offered a different approach to getting their needs met.
