We implement a unique arrangement of teaching procedures, adapted equipment and materials, accessible settings, and other interventions designed to help learners with special needs achieve a higher level of personal self-sufficiency and increased self-esteem.

Our classrooms have no more than eight students per teacher. The Primary classrooms have ratio of five students per teacher and paraprofessional.
Clinically Researched Curriculum
Our program implements scientifically researched curriculum proven effective in teaching students with unique learning styles. Additionally, our program implements clinical methods which help improve auditory and visual comprehension, verbal intelligence, memory, processing speed, attention, listening, logic and reasoning and organizational skills.
Weekly Progress Reports and Parent/Teacher Communication
Parent-teacher communication is considered a vital part of education. Our teachers send home an individualized weekly progress report that indicates how the students performed in each subject area for that week. This is accompanied by a packet containing the student’s work. This packet must be reviewed and signed by the teacher, parent, and student. In addition, parents can call or email the teacher at all times. Teachers are always available to meet with parents every morning before classes begin.
