The Gramon School
Our students grow in their understanding of academics, social skills and the world around them. Developing a passion for learning is our common goal.
Our staff facilitates student communication in a variety of ways. We believe that effective communication skills lead to greater personal confidence and success.
Our behavior management techniques are used to systematically improve socially appropriate behavior in order to enhance each child's quality of life.
In our Culinary Arts program students learn about table service, dining room protocol and business operation for an overall introduction to the culinary arts and food services industry. The pre-vocational curriculum teaches the skills necessary for employment—generalizing learned skills to pre-vocational and functional tasks. Individualization is crucial, as students have a wide range of skill levels.
- 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.
