In The Grace School each student is treated as an individual with strengths and challenges.  We work with each child and his or her family to determine the best learning plan based on the child's needs.

Our approach:

  • Embrace the individual child and instill a love of learning in a diverse, supportive community
  • Attract and support passionate, highly credentialed educators at every level
  • Leverage the power of small class sizes – average class size is 15 students
  • Enable educational excellence with two education specialists in each classroom, plus teachers’ aides
    • One general education teacher for an average of ten students
    • One special education teacher for an average of five students
    • Teaching assistant support in all classrooms
  • Maximize each child’s ability by breaking into small group instruction
  • Continually assess each student’s instruction level and workload to ensure that each child reaches his or her highest potential
  • Employ the celebrated Responsive Classroom® approach, which is associated with higher test scores, better social skills, and high-quality instruction

At The Grace School, children learn early in life the importance of accepting and understanding all types of people. They also experience the great joy of “helping a friend” which contributes to the development of a strong self-concept.

Our approach:

  • Create a diverse community of learners supported by exceptional educators, dedicated staff members, and engaged families
  • Foster an environment that embraces inclusion and helps children to develop a core set of social skills that includes cooperation, assertion, responsibility, empathy, and self-control
  • Provide experiences that help build each student’s self-esteem
  • Annual Family Events scheduled to engage families

The Grace School Enrollment Process for Students with IEP

For a child with an IEP to enroll in The Grace School, the student must be referred by their School District. If your child’s IEP indicates that The Grace School is an appropriate educational placement, we encourage parents to contact us for a tour of the Meeting Street campus and our classrooms. We can also provide an overview of our educational curriculum and therapy services provided to students per their IEP. 

If you and your school district determine that The Grace School is an appropriate placement for your child, the school district will send Meeting Street a referral packet that includes the student’s current IEP and their most recent evaluations. We are happy to provide tours of Meeting Street and The Grace School when the School District recommends Meeting Street as a placement option for their child. Tours can be arranged before the final referral to Meeting Street is completed.  Both tuition and Transportation costs are covered by your school district as specified in your child's IEP.
