It is our mission to prepare every student to be a contributing member of society and to participate successfully in local, community, and global settings. We are committed to providing specialized academic, social and emotional supports and services to students in order to fully engage them in high quality learning environments. We enjoy working collaboratively with families, students, community, colleagues, and other professionals in order to promote every student's success.
Our students learn in a school community where everyone belongs and is accepted. Students are integrated into general education classes while providing supplementary aids and services to support our students and families.
