Special Education Department Philosophy

We believe all students are individuals with a differing set of strengths, weaknesses, learning styles, needs, and goals. We believe all students can learn and achieve when given individually appropriate support, along with teaching that supports specific learning styles.  All students have the right to an appropriate, inclusive education regardless of race, gender, age, cognitive ability or learning style.
