My school is one of the best when it comes to implementing and adhering to the needs of the students. The teacher, therapists, coucelors and even the prnicipal and assistant principals get involved in the students' progress and annual goals.
This school is a great place to work in and a great place for students on the spectrum to attend. As an educator at this school we uphold ourselves to high standards given to us by the DOE and our administrators. Our motto "Working Together" defines who we are. I run a team approach in my classroom...our team consists of the classroom staff, the students, the related service providers, the parent coordinator, and of course the parents. I love the support 176 has to offer both staff and parents! It's a great place to learn and work in!

This is an amazing program for students with autism who range in age from 3 to 21. There are 6:1:1, 8:1:1, and Inclusion classes. They have a Salsa Band, Chorus, all students participate in Art, Music, and Computer classes, and the staff truly cares for their students.
I am a parent of an Autistic child and this school caters to my child's special needs. I recommend this school to all parents with children that have special needs.
Great school!- lots of support from staff. My children have done very well in this school.
