Special Education Center
The students are served by our Connecticut State Board of Education approved private school—The Levine Education Center. Parents and children can anticipate classroom sizes of 5-7 students, guided by Licensed Special Education teachers and arranged strategically by learning style and ability. With a student to staff ratio of less than two to one, we are resourced to provide the support necessary for students to succeed in the classroom as well as vocational areas on our campus. Students enrolled in our school have struggled with a number of social, behavioral or mental health issues. We educate students coping with learning difficulties, anxiety, depression, and behavioral concerns. Students who have been diagnosed on the Autism Spectrum have also found success in our program.
In addition to the education opportunities in our modern academic setting, all students spend at least one period each day in the therapeutic setting of our farm assisting staff in our wildlife rehabilitation area, exotic pets’ sanctuary and treatment center, or caring for our domestic farm animals. Or, they could be exploring our trails, hills and streams while leading or riding horses for animal-assisted therapy. Find more information about all that our natural setting allows our students on the Outdoor Education page.
