Our comprehensive program is fully committed to providing a positive educational experience for your child.  A multi-faceted behavior management program is utilized to encourage and reward appropriate behavior. Academic instruction is tailored to each student's needs through the use of on-line assessments.

A multi-sensory approach to learning is utilized to meet the Common Core State Standards and NJ Student Learning Standards.  Technology is infused into the curriculum.  All of our classrooms have internet access and Wi-Fi as well as i-Pads, computers, and an Active-Board.
