Mission and Goals

The mission of Maplebrook School is to provide quality academic programs for youngsters with learning differences, and/or who may exhibit a learning disorder. Through small group and individualized instruction, the student will be assisted in reaching his/her academic, social, vocational and physical potential.

  • Provide an academic curriculum designed to enhance strengths and remediate academic weaknesses.
  • Provide an environment where the student develops self-awareness and social skills to participate appropriately in the community.
  • Provide a setting where the student develops a peer support system consisting of companionship, friendship, and support.
  • Offer a wide variety of structured and non-structured physical activities designed to assist the student in the areas of health care, physical fitness, and sportsmanship.
  • Offer career education in occupational and vocational fields designed to provide job training for immediate or future entry into additional career training and/or employment.
  • Provide life-skills education to assist the student in the acquisition of independent living skills.
  • Facilitate the acquisition and understanding of universally accepted moral principles.
  • Provide educational direction to parents to assist them in planning future opportunities for their children.
