Leary School helps students to achieve successes that will enable them to adapt to less restrictive environments and to achieve maximum independence, achievement and happiness.
To this end, the programs focus clearly upon students accepting personal responsibilities, improving problem-solving, communication and socialization skills.
The staff of the Leary School programs strongly believes in students taking an active role in changing their own behaviors; while the staff attempt to meet student need's on an individual basis.
This philosophy is integral to all the service areas of the programs.

School Reviews

  • Recommended March 14, 2014 - I went to Leary School from 1973 through 1975, ages 12-14. It was a wonderful experience for a very insecure kid at that time. My favorite teacher was Al Berg, I wish I knew where he was now. My favorite part of the school was the positive interaction with the teachers and how they really cared! Although we learned a great deal in the classroom setting I feel i grew the most when we were playing football with the staff during breaks! - Posted by Student/Alumni
  • Recommended April 09, 2012 - my ten years from 1982 to 1992 working at Leary School enhanced my life while it enhanced the students entrusted to our care. Now in the twilight of my life at 65 years of age I am more than sure that all children will benefit from the Leary School learning experiences.
