Finding the right school for your child can be a challenge. While curriculum, academic rigor and extra curricular activities typically top the list of factors to consider, there is another key component vital to determining the best fit for your child: a positive social environment.
Oakstone’s environment and culture are based on high expectations in academics and behavior for the entire school community. We say community because that’s exactly what Oakstone is: a collaborative effort between teachers, students and parents dedicated to excellence.
Oakstone is also known as a full-inclusion school where children without disabilities learn side-by-side with children who have autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Since class sizes are small, highly qualified teachers are able to meet the needs of all students while providing a dynamic learning environment. The small number of students in each class also allows teachers to personalize programs for students who are working beyond grade level.
While it is widely accepted that children with disabilities benefit from learning and socializing with those who do not – research also shows that students without disabilities have much to gain including improved self-esteem, helping behavior and acceptance for those with differences.
