High School Special Education

It is the vision of the Special Education Department to view every student as an individual first, knowing each one has unique strengths to contribute to both the school and their community. We offer innovative programs that foster independence, academics, communication and social/emotional skills. Inclusion is a priority in our District, which allows students to learn and socialize with their general education peers to the fullest extent possible.
