Leeway School

The program stresses the development of internal controls and personal responsibility for one's behavior.
Normalcy is expected; competency is stressed. Teachers strive to become trusted people whose guidance, limit setting and criticism are eventually seen as nurturing, helpful and supportive.
They work to build the self-esteem and improve the self-image of students.
Teachers provide direction, orchestrating activities and discussions which encourage exploration and experimentation.
Our program provides weekly individual counseling to all students. Speech therapy is available when needed.
