School Notes:

MHS is divided into two distinct programs: a middle school for students ages 12-14 and a high school for students ages 15-21.  Within these two “schools”, there are classrooms with ratios of 8:1:2 and 10:1:2, depending on the learning and behavioral needs of the students.  The classroom teachers are supported by an experienced, highly-trained team of School Administrators, Therapists, and Program Coordinators who assist the teachers in utilizing behavioral methods, employing structured teaching, and coordinating academic planning.  Instructional programming focuses on teaching basic academics, speech/language, self-help, daily-living, vocational, and social skills. Classrooms teachers utilize Individualized Goal Selection (IGS) and the Syracuse Curriculum to create lesson plans and devise appropriate learning objectives.
