Manville School

  • Since 1957, we've provided hundreds of students the combination of educational, behavioral and clinical assistance they need through our Manville school, an on-site therapeutic day school for children (ages 5 - 15).
  • Judge Baker Children's Center is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of children whose emotional and behavioral problems threaten to limit their potential.
  • The Center strives to provide services of the highest standard, to search for new knowledge, to teach, and to apply and disseminate knowledge.
  • Our mission is to provide intervention and research devoted to serving children and adolescents at-risk for persistent academic and social failure because of emotional, learning and behavioral problems and associated conditions.
  • Of particular note is our lower school for students in grades K-4, which is starting the year with a cohort of Kindergarten and First Graders with room to grow! Please consider whether you have students who could benefit from the Manville experience and feel welcome to reach out to David Zimmer, Admissions Director.
