Students in our Secondary Program (middle and high school) enroll in a blend of rigorous academic and life skills courses that ultimately prepare them for college or a career. The curriculum includes traditional academic courses, enhanced by engaging projects such as robotics, website development, environmental science, film making and culinary arts. Students in both departments study in the basic areas outlined below, with the addition of elective courses in high school.
- English and Language Arts
- Social Studies
- American Sign Language
- Physical Education
Individual support services such as occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, and counseling services are available to students either one-to-one or in small groups based on need as determined by the Individualized Education Plan (IEP) process.
Middle school students receive direct instruction in social-emotional learning skills during health class and advisory meetings, where students participate in a variety of activities from the Second Step and Responsive Classroom curricula. With staff support and modeling, students practice skills such as goal setting, relationship building, and problem-solving to build their social-emotional competency.
Extracurricular activities are another important part of the Secondary School program. Students are able to participate in a variety of sports, after-school activities, student organizations, and academic teams. In addition, high school students can take driver’s education and explore post-secondary training options such as summertime internships or mainstream classes at the local middle and high schools.
