Helping STUDENTS with special needs extend their REACH

Our job is to show them a more effective and productive way. Our elementary, middle and high school students benefit from a proven curriculum of academic and social skills instruction. As a result, our fully accredited school has a proud history of helping students reach graduation or their goals of returning to public schools.
