Special Education

With the help of the academic director, you will help to design your son’s education program. He will have the support and structure that he needs. His educational program will be based on his current Individualized Education Plan (IEP), 504 Plan, or psychological evaluation recommendations. We will take care to meet his special education needs.

Because each class has an average of 12 students, personalized, one-on-one instruction is the standard at Discovery Ranch. Teachers will take the time to understand and accommodate your son’s specific needs. They will have the flexibility to allow him to work at his own pace.

The classes at Discovery Ranch are different from those in traditional school. Classes take place in the afternoon. Experiential learning, such as Peer Leadership, is a major focus of everything your son will do. Accordingly, he may rediscover his love of learning.

Discovery Ranch has helped guide many students in special education programs to high school completion. We have seen our graduates successfully enter college, vocational programs, and become employed. As a result, we are confident that we will also be able to help your son.
