Somerset Middle School

The Somerset Middle School classroom has a 220-day program that offers a structured learning environment within the inclusionary setting of a public middle school.  This classroom provides comprehensive educational services to children ages 11 to 15 years (grades 6-8) whose moderate to severe developmental delays, adaptive behavior challenges, language delays, and/or behavioral/emotional issues interfere with their success in a regular or inclusion setting with modifications.  The students’ needs frequently arise from diagnoses of autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, pervasive developmental disorder, neuromotor deficits, and/or social/ emotional challenges.  The program offers a comprehensive academic curriculum, pre-vocational component, and related services necessary for a successful transition to a less restrictive and/or high school setting.  Our mission is to provide a middle school experience that focuses on the functional academics and transition skills necessary for success in today’s society.  Educators incorporate research-based best practices with supports provided by continual professional development, technical assistance, and a network of expert consultants. The Somerset Middle School classroom has an average enrollment of 8 students and students are supported with 1:2 staff-to-student ratio.
