NJ Special Needs Middle School

Center School Middle SchoolThe Center School special needs Middle School program content focuses on acquisition of basic skills for bright learning disabled New Jersey middle school students.  We are a non-profit special education private school serving special needs children in NJ since 1971.

Our special education middle school program is carried out through small group instruction that considers unique learning styles and personal strengths and weaknesses. Instruction may take place in situations that range from individual tutoring to groups of six to eight. Curriculum objectives are adjusted in rate of presentation, quantity and quality of work, and sequence of instruction as indicated by the needs of the student.

We provide onsite Occupational Therapy, a vital function in helping students with how they perceive the world  accurately as the senses must first respond with the optimal level of activity needed to accurately detect the source of stimulation.

Disabilities served have included:

  • Learning/Language Disabilities
  • Dyslexia Spectrum Disorder affecting Reading, Spelling, and Written Language
  • Mood Disorders/Bipolar, Depression

  • Oppositional Defiant Disorder

Skill development is emphasized in small, self-contained settings while varying degrees of departmentalization are introduced. Students begin learning to adapt to different teachers and class groups through many special programs that are tailored to meet the needs of each class. Transferring authority, developing organizational skills, and increasing personal responsibility prepare students for returning to district or advancing to Center School ‘s departmentalized high school program. Academic instruction and materials are adjusted for each student on a continuing basis.
