School is an important component in each student’s development. Students are placed into specialized instructional services according to their individual academic, social/emotional, transitional/vocational, and developmental needs.
GLS classrooms may include students from either our residential or day school programs. GLS is a collaborative service provider that supports students from local school districts, as well as out of state school districts and agencies, to assist students in achieving IEP goals and returning to their home schools.
At Genesee Lake School we have a variety of classrooms, each purposefully structured to best meet the needs of the students within.
