Learning All Ways; Learning Always.
All students with exceptionalities in the public education system are eligible for a free, appropriate public education (FAPE). Each eligible student will have specially designed instruction and services as outlined in his/her individual education plan. All students at the high school level students are given post-secondary training opportunities with as much independence as possible.
Specially designed instruction can be provided as part of general education classroom in collaboration with general education teachers, in special education resource rooms, and/or special education self-contained classroom, some eligible student will receive specialized 1:1 adult Behavioral Health Professional or Educational Technician or receive specialized services as part of Day Treatment Program.
Our highly qualified teachers care deeply for each of our students and may serve a student over the course of four to five years. Over the years a student is receiving specialized services, our teachers are able to form close relationships with parents to better support their children.
In late middle school and into high school, specialized instruction will focus on job-related skills based on student post-secondary interests. Students at the high school level have the opportunity to access the tech center or participate in hands-on, job-oriented learning opportunities. All students are referred to Vocational Rehabilitation for ongoing support with employment or post-secondary education.
Our student-to-teacher ratio varies depending on the needs of the student population. The typical small group instruction is 1:8 ratio or 1:15 ratio in an educational technician-supported classroom.
