Special Education Department Philosophy

The Special Education Department believes 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 curricula that support specific learning styles. All students have the right to an appropriate, inclusive education regardless of race, gender, age, cognitive ability or learning style.
