The special education program for students aged five (5) through twenty one (21) serves students with mild to moderate cognitive delays as well as children diagnosed as multiply disabled. The program offers functional mathematics, prevocational training, english language arts and daily living skills. Our four classes have a student teacher ratio of 3 to 1 and have or program aide in the room. In addition to the academic instruction, the students also receive speech and language services, occupational and physical therapy, art, music, computrs, and physical education. The students also participate in a monthly bowling trip and different field trips througout the year.
The teachers report that the students are taught to respect themselves and others. They are challenged to become self-sufficient and independent members of society. Students, staff and parents work as a team to develop skills in a small family atmosphere.
