The Sanford Street Teaching and Learning Center is a special education school for emotionally and behaviorally disturbed children in grades K-6.
The small size – eight classrooms with a 6:1:1 ratio – enables us to individualize programs and academics for each child during both the regular school year and extended school year.
The program is based on an ecological-collaborative model with multiple theoretical bases. Special education teachers, mental health practitioners, and allied health professionals work together as a community to help each child develop appropriate self-management and self-awareness skills, which will allow them to function as independently and responsibly as possible.
