Collaborative School

When students become part of the Collaborative School, they join a community where friendships are fostered through an accepting and engaging learning environment. Our staff starts each day with the belief that students can build competency and a positive sense of

self within the context of a nurturing classroom environment.

Whether you are a parent, student, or district administrator, this website

will provide you with information related to our philosophy, program,

and admission/referral process. A tour of our school can be arranged

by our Education Director.

Thank you for your interest in The Collaborative School. We provide our students with individualized educational and therapeutic programming to support healing, learning, and growth.


Our commitment to the relationships with students and their families is at the core of our work. These relationships are built around unconditional positive regard, mutual respect, honesty, and open communication. We believe that growth occurs for our students within the context of these relationships and the partnership between the school and families.
