Staff Philosophy:
The most effective way to educate children is through a multi-methodological approach. All students should have access to the Ohio Academic Content Standards, including the Extended Standards. Curriculum materials should be modified to progress student learning. Skill development is imperative to student success: attention, imitation, communication and language, social relationships, symbolic play, imagination, self-regulation, and fine/gross motor. All behavior has a communicative purpose and it is our responsibility to assess and strive to determine the communicative intent of each behavior. All students should be respected as intelligent individuals and be challenged to meet their fullest potential.  Families need to be active partners in their child's education process. Vocational education is an important part of educational programming. Community participation, involvement, and awareness are essential for student success.
