About our Elementary School

  •  

    The Elementary program prides itself on providing an enriched school experience while supporting our students with the tailored therapeutic environment they require. All students have access to writing, reading, language arts, math, science and social studies instruction along with social and life skills programming. Students access this curriculum throughout the school day via multi-modal approach. Our program is rich in trained professionals, supports, and technology specific to our population. Students participate in Physical Education, Art Education, and Music Therapy throughout the school week.

    Our community engages in school-wide events according to monthly themes. Students help to plan and participate in our annual Science Fair, Thanksgiving Dinner, Halloween Dance, Holiday Fair, etc. One student is awarded “Student of the Month” each month. Community outings are common for all programs and allow students to generalize their skills to other settings. Our classrooms are equipped with technology such as smart boards, iPads, and chromebooks to engage and enhance our curricula. The elementary school supports a greenhouse where students learn about gardening, the compost and can sampling herbs and vegetables after growing. In addition, we have a STEM lab that gives students a virtual reality learning experience using our zSpace desktops and V-R goggles along with educational content using our LEGO kits, Dash and Dot Robots and 3D printer.

    Our program has a wealth of therapists to assist our students and train our staff in the most current research-based intervention strategies. Our integrated therapy approach provides Board Certified Behavior Analysts, Speech/Language Pathologists, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Music Therapists, and Social Workers that work with the classroom staff to ensure the child’s range of needs are met.
