Programs

Dual Language

English as a New Language

Gifted and Talented

Students receive instruction in both Spanish and English. We follow the 50-50 model. One day is in one language and the subsequent day the student continues to receive the instruction in the other language.

The goal of this program is for students to be fluent in both languages.
  
Students who are learning English as a new language receive additional support and strategies.   
We offer Gifted & Talented (G&T) classes from kindergarten through fifth. This program is created to supports the needs of exceptional students. We aim to deliver instruction that is aligned to the Common Core Learning Standards (CCLS) and provides students with accelerated learning.

Students entering kindergarten through third grade are eligible to participate in G&T admissions. Children must pass an assessment to be eligible to apply to G&T programs.

This is an integrated service where students with disabilities are educated with their peers in the general education classroom. The Collaborative Team Teaching classroom consists of one special education teacher and one general education teacher. All students benefit from having two teachers. The class follows the same CCLS aligned curriculum and pacing as in other classes. Students are expected to meet the grade-level standards.
  
These classes provide our special needs students with a smaller group setting. Students are able to get one-on-one attention. There is a teacher and Para educator. The class typically consists of 6 to 12 students.​​

  ​Counseling  ​​

Occupational Therapy

Physcial Therapy

Our guidance counselors provide at-risk and mandated counseling. They also do preventive sessions. The purpose of mandated counseling is to help students with disabilities recognize and modify behaviors that interfere with learning. It can be individual and/or group. Our counselors also work with students to help them succeed in school. They address social and emotional school functioning in
the areas of appropriate school behavior and discipline, social skills, self-control, conflict resolution, problem solving skills, self-esteem, decision-making skills and vocational and transition planning.
Occupational Therapy emphasizes independence in activities of daily living (e.g. dressing, feeding, money management), skill acquisition (e.g. self management skills, vocational skills) and school participation in various settings including the classroom, cafeteria, bathroom, and playground.

Occupational Therapy is designed to
maintain, improve or restore function of students in all educationally related activities including neuromusculoskeletal function (e.g. range of motion, muscle strength, endurance, postural control), motor function (e.g. fine motor skills, oral motor control, visual motor integration), sensory and perceptual function (e.g. integrating and processing of tactile, visual, auditory information), cognitive function (e.g. attention, memory) and psychosocial function (e.g. self-concept, interpersonal skills).

Physical Therapy may be recommended for a student whose physical needs require such services and/or impede access to their educational program. Physical Therapy emphasizes physical function and independence in various settings including the classroom, bathroom, gym, staircase, playground and transitions between settings.

Physical therapy uses manual/ handling techniques, exercise and sensory processing activities to maintain, improve or restore function including gross motor development (e.g. mobility, ambulation, posture), neuromotor status (e.g. muscle tone, strength, balance, coordination), motor planning and negotiating the environment.

Physical therapy also promotes function by adapting the environment, providing and maintaining seating, positioning, assistive technology and mobility equipment and by monitoring and managing orthoses and prostheses.

Physical therapy may be recommended for a student whose physical needs require such services and/or impede access to their educational program.

Speech/Language Therapy

Speech/Language Therapy is designed to address deficits in a student's auditory processing, articulation/ phonological skills, comprehension and use of semantics, syntax, pragmatics, voice production and fluency. It may also be recommended to address communication problems, including
problems of language comprehension and expressive language which adversely affect school performance.
