More than a classroom.

Our school is more than a series of classrooms. It’s the ideal place for students with autism to find fulfillment.

The school is equipped with Snoezelen® Multi-Sensory Environments designed specifically to meet the needs of our students. Interactive materials, including a platform swing, fiber optics and Sensory Magic™ technology, provide direct and indirect stimulation of the senses. Features of the facility include:


  • Sensory rooms
  • Multi-purpose room
  • STEAM classroom
  • Culinary classroom and student-run coffee shop
  • PAES (Practical Assessment Exploration System) Lab
  • Classrooms are equipped with SmartBoard technology, restrooms, and calming areas
