Student Transitions

feature-photo-transitionCenter School believes that partnering with parents to make careful decisions about the next phase in a child’s educational life is a vitally important part of the program.

Throughout their time at Center School, students develop competence in reading, writing, and math skills. But most importantly, they become confident, self-advocates who have developed an awareness of who they are as learners.

The transition process involves communication between the parents and the administrative team in order to provide each family with information and support as various educational offerings are considered. Throughout the individualized transition process, there is a sincere commitment to ensure on-going success in the lives of Center School students. Over the years, the capabilities and successes of our students have earned them acceptance into a myriad of fine schools where they have continued to grow their talents and to contribute significantly.

How does Center School help children prepare for high school?

High School Transition Process

As students develop academic skills, they learn how to apply them with independence in order to be successful in high school. Through direct instruction, students learn about their own unique learning styles and how to manage their learning differences successfully. The skill of self-advocacy is emphasized, and as self-awareness grows, students can better manage the learning demands expected in high school.
