We’ve grown from two courses taken by 37 students to 16 courses taken by more than 350 students! Every year, we’ve added courses and greatly expanded the number of students taking AP classes.
At the high school level, we use a variety of approaches to support our at-risk students. We combine SETSS (Special Education Teacher Support Services) with a range of specialized supports and schedules for students who have unique needs.
In our middle schools, the special education supports and structures are continually evolving so we cater more effectively to our diverse communities and the specific needs of each incoming class. We utilize a robust Integrated Co-teaching (ICT) model paired with individualized supports that we adapt as students transition from 5th to 8th grade.
At the elementary school level, our primary model for special education is Integrated Co-teaching (ICT), which means there are two teachers in every classroom. One is a general education teacher and one is a certified special education teacher.
