We take pride in connecting our students with everything that they need to thrive. With small class sizes and a low student-to-staff ratio, personal attention and compassionate care are our top priorities.
Following the admissions process, we meet with each new student and their family to evaluate the student’s needs and review their Individual Education Program (IEP) to determine the best instructional environment for each student. Many students also have a behavioral intervention plan to help students replace problem behaviors with more positive ones. We meet students at their level and help them to feel comfortable, and to communicate appropriately, so that they can be fully engaged in the learning process.
We have three distinct academic programs, each designed to meet the needs of our students:
- Elementary and middle school program (for students with emotional disabilities)
- High school program (for students with emotional disabilities)
- Autism program (for students in elementary through high school)
The elementary and middle school program, and the autism program, are located on the Glyndon Campus. Our high school program is located on the Reisterstown Campus. The students are grouped according to grade, age, social skills, behaviors, and ability, ensuring that they are working alongside peers in a supportive environment. Although we have two comprehensive campuses, we are one school with the same goals for our students, and many of our facilities, team members, and services are shared across campuses. An example of our two-campus collaboration occurs during the 8th grade year, when students in the emotional disability program focus on transitioning to high school. Staff from both campuses work together to prepare students for high school through therapeutic and classwork activities, so they can seamlessly move from the Glyndon campus to the Reisterstown campus.
