OVERVIEW: The Ivymount School is a non-profit, non-public, co-educational, special education and related services program which serves students with autism, intellectual disabilities, multiple disabilities, other health impairment, specific learning disabilities, and speech or language impairment in an Elementary School (Kindergarten through Grade 8) and a Secondary School (Grades 9-12), and a Nongraded (ages 4 through age 21) educational program. Many of the students have multiple learning needs and require a program that includes and integrates academic, social and pragmatic skills programming in classrooms with low student/teacher ratios. Students receive related services as determined by their Individualized Education Program (IEP). The school enrollment capacity is 230 students. All school programs are eleven-months. The legal authority for the school is The Ivymount School, Inc.
The goals of the school are:
1.) To provide an intensive educational and therapeutic program for students with disabilities whose learning needs cannot be met in a less restrictive environment.
2.) To prepare students for transition to less restrictive environments, as appropriate.
3.) To create opportunities for families to work collaboratively with the school in support of their children’s special needs.
4.) To raise the awareness of the community at large as to both the needs and the skills of students with disabilities.
