School Notes

  • The Contoocook School was created in 2000 toserve New Hampshire's school districts by providing aspecial education program that could serve students with specificemotional and learning needs. We are an out-of-districtspecial education placement, and currently accept students fromNew Hampshire public schools who have an IEP with the primary codingof Emotional Disturbance, Other Health Impairment, SpecificLearning Disability, and Autism. We cannot accept students fromstates other than New Hampshire. Referrals come from NewHampshire school districts who are looking for a more supportiveprogram for students with specific needs. We work with the studentand family to help achieve their goals. In some cases, thismeans helping the student develop the skills needed to transitionback into a public school setting. In other cases, it means workingwith the student to help them earn a high school diploma. TheContoocook School is able to award a 20 credit diploma based on theNew Hampshire minimum standards.
