We want our students to enjoy rich, full lives by participating in the world around them. Built into our educational plans and programs are ongoing opportunities personal and social development, community activities, and meaningful relationships with staff and other students.
In spite of the many challenges our students face, we believe that it is important for “kids to be kids.” Therefore, we strive to create an environment that promotes fun and friendship.
Many students actively participate in after-school and weekend activities. Enrichment activities are coordinated with Outdoor Exploration, an organization that specifically works with individuals with disabilities.
Our students enjoy hiking, kayaking, skiing, ice skating, and biking, as well as regular community outings.
From sports teams to Special Olympics, from dances to prom night, and from family dinners to graduation day, students take part in, and learn from, many typical adolescent experiences that mark their rites of passage and positively impact their transition to adulthood.
