UHS Keystone Steele Canyon schools are year-round, non-public schools serving students who have been designated emotionally disturbed and students with autism or developmental disabilities grades PK-12.
The ten schools and six collaborative satellite classrooms are located in California and Texas.
The schools incorporate intensive behavioral services, individualized educational plans, and designated instructional services as indicated on the student’s individual education plan.
The school programs are research-based with the primary emphasis on delivering services individualized during intake for the population of students we serve and based upon the leading research practices for this population.
Additionally, the school programs are fully in compliance with best practices standards established by the California Department of Education and our local school districts.
Our positive behavior management system is based upon the Girls and Boys Town model for students with emotional disturbance and our commitment to careful, data-based monitoring of each student’s progress toward individualized behavioral and academic goals helps us maximize each student’s potential to learn & develop, as well as facilitate eventual transition back to public school.
