The Department of Special & Inclusive Education provides services to students with Special Educational Needs included in the general education classroom since the academic year of 2004-2005. We have currently mainstreamed more than 50 students in the elementary section with various disabilities in the general education classrooms starting from KG1 to Grade 5.
18 students with Special Educational Needs have graduated from the American Division since the year 2004-2005.

We currently have 26 Resource Room teachers that work in Elementary division to accommodate the needs of students.

Thank you for your continued support and positivity as we strive to do what is best for ALL of our students during these challenging times.
