Through technology and special accommodations, we are able to individualize each student’s education plan to meet them where they are, then scaffold up to grade level standards. Progress is monitored by identifying and measuring learning outcomes throughout the year. We offer related arts including technology, music, art, and physical education to ensure students receive a well-rounded education.
