School programs include all ages, from preschool to graduation, in classrooms that support children with varied disabilities, strengths and academic goals. All students learn from the same curriculum (Massachusetts Frameworks) as their peers across the state, but instruction and materials are adapted to each child’s learning styles and abilities. Students are supported by a strong interdisciplinary team which may include teachers, paraprofessionals, occupational, speech, and physical therapists, school adjustment counselors, behavior analysts and nurses.
Students with emotional and/or behavioral challenges, ADHD, or specific learning disabilities.
Shore Students live in and are referred by (15) different school districts, currently. We have over 200 students per year enroll in school programs each year. On average, Shore school tuitions are over 50% lower than comparable private school tuition, resulting in considerable savings for districts’ special education budgets.
Parents describe our staff as knowledgable and compassionate. All of our professional staff are licensed by the Department of Elementary and Secondary and/or their professional accreditation associations. The majority of our school staff, in all positions, have been employed at Shore for 5 years or longer. Nearly a third have Shore careers over 10 and up to 31 years (and counting).
