Richard and Virginia Bodine founded Bodine School in memory of their only son, Rick. While attending The Mills School in Florida due to the lack of resources for learning disabled students in the Memphis area, Rick had a fatal accident. Honoring his memory became a mission of the Bodine family, and establishing the school allowed families in the Mid-South area to send their child with dyslexia to a local school. The decision to establish a facility in Memphis was also based on the interest, involvement and work of many lay and professional people who recognized the needs of the area students.


At Bodine School, we provide an independent, educational experience that allows the dyslexic mind to thrive through a challenging and thought-provoking curriculum. Neuroscience proves that dyslexics learn differently than others. With this in mind, Bodine has built a curriculum, electives, after school programs and one-on-one learning opportunities all under the guidance of our three Core Values: Innovative, Transformative, Boundless. The Values are prevalent in everything we do.

There are 35,000 dyslexic students in Shelby County.


Thank you for your interest in Bodine School. We look forward to working with you throughout the admissions process. Be sure to schedule a tour of our campus to witness first-hand the supportive, welcoming environment that Bodine School has created for the dyslexic learner. Please don’t hesitate to contact Mr. Reece Daugherty, Director of Admissions & Outplacement, at 901-754-1800, ext. 301.

20% of the population is dyslexic.
