The Gramon School Photo #2 - Our well–trained team provides an effective and individualized program for each student. The best, research–based practices inform our teaching and therapies.
The Gramon School Photo #3 - Our students grow in their understanding of academics, social skills and the world around them. Developing a passion for learning is our common goal.
The Gramon School Photo #4 - Our staff facilitates student communication in a variety of ways. We believe that effective communication skills lead to greater personal confidence and success.
- The Gramon School helps pupils with behavioral disabilities and/or Autism Spectrum disorders to acquire the skills, confidence and initiative necessary for them to learn, grow and assume their rightful positions within the mainstream of their schools and communities.
- A "leading edge" school, Gramon provides every student with a personal computer and workstation with which he or she completes daily classwork in the context of a supportive, family-like atmosphere.
- Each classroom is staffed by a certified special education teacher and two specially trained para-professionals.
- These personnel meet as a team with social workers, reading, art and physical education teachers, and administrators weekly to review each student's progress.
- Like its sister schools Glenview Academy and New Beginnings, Gramon regularly undergoes the rigorous self-study and self-renewal necessary to maintain accreditation by the Middlestates Association of Colleges and Schools.
