JEWELS Inclusive School

Our child-centered program nurtures each child by offering focused, meaningful instruction that is developmentally appropriate. Attention is given to the physical, emotional, and intellectual development of all children. The classroom utilizes a multi-sensory approach to learning, incorporating sensory activities daily. Each classroom uses an age appropriate MSDE approved curriculum, developed with the whole child in mind. We adapt and modify curricula to individual needs, in accordance with core standards. 

With the aid of experienced teachers and the availability of on-site pediatric therapists, the children are motivated and challenged to fulfill their full potential.
