Seekonk North High School

The Seekonk North High School is an approved 220-day special education public day school which provides educational services to students between the ages of 14 to 18 years (grades 9-12) with diagnoses of autism spectrum disorder, moderate to severe cognitive delays, sensory processing and communication challenges, neuromotor deficits and/or medical and psychiatric challenges.   Our mission is to develop skills that will enable students to become productive citizens of their communities and to participate as fully as possible in all areas of life.  We seek to increase the skills of the students in the following areas:  communication and language, cognitive development, activities of daily living, vocational skills, social relationships, physical education/recreation, positive behavior and community inclusion.  Focus is placed on producing desirable outcomes for students such as paid employment and being active, contributing members of the communities in which they live.  Educators incorporate research-based best practices with supports provided by embedded professional development, technical assistance and a network of expert  consultants.  The two Seekonk North High School classrooms have an average enrollment of 6-8 students and students are supported with a 1:2 staff-to-student ratio.
