Our students receive personalized behavioural, academic and career programming, based on their own learning and developmental needs. We offer small classes to support student's development, communication and personalized needs. We are a safe and caring school, with an emphasis on developing self-confidence, self-advocacy, self-awareness, self-esteem and self-sufficiency. We believe in good character promoting our 4R's with our Students- Respect, Responsibility, Relationship and Restraint.
