Welcome to the STAR School's Special Education page. The STAR School is dedicated to meeting the needs of all of our students, and those students with special needs are no exception. Our Special Needs program is based on the idea of Inclusion. Inclusion means that we consider all of the ways that special needs students can have their educational needs met without their being removed from the classroom. For those students who have academic goals on their Individual Education Plan, these are addressed in the regular education classroom to the greatest extent possible. If a student requires Pull Out services, these are usually in non-academic areas such as Speech, Occupational or Physical Therapy.
