The Elementary School Program at Shepard Schools recognizes the fact that many students struggle with emotional and behavioral immaturities which can interfere with everything from their self-esteem, respect and tolerance for others, to their academic motivation, ability to process information, and facility at solving problems.
Our program works within state Student Learning Standards to equip students with the tools they need to achieve their potential in a mainstream school setting.
We also provide speech/ language therapy, and occupational therapy. A full arts program is offered, including instruction in the arts, drama and musical instruments. students participate in assemblies, seasonal events, art exhibitions, drama productions, chorus and talent shows.
