The Gramon School

  • 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.
