A note from our director
"My goal is to see every student who is enrolled in our schools be the best that they can be. Our team members share a common desire to see each student achieve their therapeutic and academic goals. We want to see our students be as prepared as possible for whatever is next in their lives, whether that is graduation, or returning to school in their home district."
Amy Townsend, M.Ed., Director of Education
Wesley K–8 and Wesley High School are Approved Private Schools with licenses in special education including autism, learning disabilities, and social/emotional disturbance.
We unite educational and therapeutic support to address problem behaviors while maintaining strong standards for academic achievement. Our approach utilizes School Wide Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (SWPBIS), a nationally-recognized framework for establishing the school culture needed to create the most effective learning environment for all students.
In and outside the classroom, students are met with a safe, inclusive environment where they learn to respect themselves, others, and property while building a sense of success and accomplishment.
Classes are team-taught by both a content-certified teacher and a behavioral health professional. Each student receives breakfast and lunch daily through the National School Lunch Program. Outside of class, students can choose from a variety of extracurricular subjects and intramural sports.
