They also receive a Life Skills credit for their participation in the Phase Group Therapy, attend a College & Career Readiness class, and have weekly field days (for physical education and field trips).

In addition to meeting with teachers after school, students have the opportunity to work with one of our volunteer tutors for one-on-one support.

We also employ a full-time special education teacher who meets with individual students on a regular basis, revises and updates IEPs, holds IEP team meetings and completes progress monitoring on all IEP goals.
