Low Student-to-Teacher Ratio: 
Students thrive in our intimate and structured environment. Our low student-to-teacher ratio allows our team to implement Prescriptive Education Plans (PEPs) that meet the diverse needs of each student.

Assessment of Progress: 
We believe effective, timely and target assessment of progress is critical to success. Our teachers and staff regularly evaluate the progress of each child, assessing the direction and pace of instruction and any related service supports needed to facilitate progress.

Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports:
We provide a vast range of positive behavioral supports that encourage students to maintain their focus on cooperation, completion of tasks and appropriate social interactions.
For students who need additional support, individualized behavior intervention plans are developed to help replace problem behaviors. Behavior specialists are assigned to each student to monitor treatment effectiveness.

Learning Model:
At Palm Valley Child, we recognize that each student learns in different ways. That is why our teachers create classrooms that are vibrant, stimulating centers of learning. Our teachers specialize in remediation through individualized and differentiated instruction. These multi-sensory classrooms draw students into lessons regardless of whether they are visual, auditory or kinesthetic learners. Our students engage with challenging course material, authentic-learning opportunities and enriching co-curricular activities that support and cultivate their varied interests and talents.

Campus Life:
Throughout the year, students participate in various extracurricular activities designed to enhance their school experiences. Examples include musical performances, school-wide career days, community-based trips, and holiday or theme-related activities and assemblies.

Our Team:
Our staff includes highly trained special educators, curriculum specialists, related service providers and paraprofessional staff who receive ongoing training in evidence-based practices. Among our staff specialties are: aquatic instruction, art and music therapy, behavioral supports, counseling and mental health services, psychiatry, physical therapy, psychology and speech-language pathology.
