School Notes

  • We offer an academic program aligned with the NJ Core Curriculum Standards. Our program features proven, research-based learning strategies including multi-sensory approaches, assistive technology, and organizational skills. We teach our students how to learn by providing them with meta-cognitive strategies and cross-curricular approaches. These tools allow students to build their academic foundations, increase their ability to be active and independent learners, and develop a sense of who they are as individuals and students.
