GLENFOREST AT A GLANCE
A school for kids who learn differently
WHAT SETS US APART
PROVIDING SPECIALIZED EDUCATION
Glenforest specializes in customized education for your child, taking into account your child’s goals and aspirations for the future. We were recently featured in Autism Parenting Magazine as a school that makes children’s special needs a priority.
At Glenforest, each student receives:
- A student learning plan
- Progress monitoring through FastBridge
- Direct instruction from qualified teachers
- The opportunity to participate in no-tryout athletics
- Access to our Essential Living classroom and other hands-on education experiences
Glenforest offers multiple programs to create a unique learning experience for its students. This positive environment is specially-designed to meet their academic, social and emotional needs. Areas of focus include career transition, speech, occupational therapy and self-advocacy.
Glenforest offers specialized curriculum that meets South Carolina state standards. We use direct instruction and teach to mastery. Each child is taught at his or her individual instructional level.
Glenforest class sizes are kept small to ensure each child receives the attention (s)he needs to be successful. Our teacher to student ratio, on average, is 1:4.
CLUBS & SPORTS
Tuesday to Thursday, Glenforest offers all students the option to participate in a variety of fun clubs and activities and sports.
*Note: Clubs and Sports are suspended at this time due to COVID19. We will continue to monitor and evaluate the situation to determine when to resume activites.
Glenforest reinforces independent living skills in its new functional classroom for students from K-8th Grade.
Glenforest School has sensory rooms, therapy animals and specialized curriculum that addresses the social and emotional needs of the students that we serve.
