Who We Are
Our Student Services Department is committed to supporting “every student, every step of the way.” We believe ALL students possess unique strengths, and we are wholeheartedly committed to building upon each child’s gifts in a caring and supportive manner. We value the close collaboration of both parents and staff members to design individualized educational programs that maximize student success. Above all, we are committed to the implementation of evidence-based strategies that research has shown works best for students with exceptional needs.
Special Education Services
Our special education program is designed to identify students with disabilities and implement programs and services to support their educational needs.
Gifted education is an intervention placement that is designed to meet the unique needs of students who score significantly above their age peers on state-approved achievement and ability tests.
Due to these qualities, gifted students need unique and diverse opportunities to meet their educational needs. Our goal is to allow them to excel and to achieve their potential.
