Seekonk North Middle School

The Seekonk North Middle School program is an approved 220-day special education public day school which provides educational services to students between the ages of 11 and 15 years (grades 6-8) with diagnoses of autism spectrum disorder, moderate to severe cognitive delays, sensory processing and communication challenges, neuromotor deficits and/or medical and psychiatric challenges.  The program of studies is a functional curriculum that is highly modified to meet the specific individual needs of the students by focusing on individual students’ learning styles and communication methods.  Technology is heavily integrated into the curriculum through the daily use of computers, Smart Boards, iPads, communication systems and other assistive devices in the classrooms.   Our primary goal is to enable our students to achieve success in community integration, functional daily living skills and social relationships through specialized techniques, adaptations and modifications of the curriculum and the environment, and through the use of Positive Behavioral Intervention and  Supports methodology.   The Seekonk North Middle School classroom has an average enrollment of 8 students. Students are supported with a 1:2 staff-to-student ratio.
