50th Anniversary

During the 2022-2023 school year, Bodine School celebrates its 50th anniversary.

“When Dick and Jinnie Bodine established the school, their vision was an institution dedicated to serving families and providing quality education to students with unique learning needs. As a result, students past and present have gained confidence and unlocked their fullest academic potential. It is an honor and privilege to play a part in this history, to be a piece of Dick and Jinnie Bodine’s legacy, and to continue to foster the education of students with dyslexia.”

John Murphy, Head of School (2016-Present)
