T.C. Harris School provides services for students, ages 6 to 21, with an array of needs including, but not limited to:
• Intellectually/Developmentally Disabled (IQ’s 80 and below)
• Behavioral Needs
• Emotional Disabilities
• Low Incidence Syndromes
• Communication Needs
• Autism Spectrum Disorders
• Neurological Disorders
We use three types of classrooms:
Our traditional academic classrooms emphasize social studies, science, language arts, reading and math, with the goal of obtaining a certificate of completion, diploma, or GED.
Our functional academic classrooms emphasize practical reading, language arts, math, and the acquisition of skills to live independently in the community.
Finally, our life skills classrooms serve students who need more intensive instruction and training in daily living skills.
Regardless of the type of classroom, our school looks and feels like a school. We believe it is important for our students to experience a typical school environment to make the transition back to their own school easier. After a successful period of therapeutic intervention and academic progress, T.C. Harris School works with the student’s local school district to make the transition back to their own school as seamless as possible.
The difference is that our school has all the educational supports necessary so that students can learn and succeed. We encourage our students to explore their passions and interests, inspiring a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.
