How Do We Do It?
Our house rules boldly highlight the everyday actions that occur on campus and the Keys to Success are integrated into The Joy School's curriculum, helping kids both inside and outside of the classroom for life.
The House Rules
Most students attend The Joy School for three to four years and are highly successful when transitioning to mainstream elementary, middle and high schools. Upon leaving the School, students:
- Demonstrate success in future academic settings
- Have skills to navigate a variety of academic and social situations
- Take responsibility for their own learning
- Exhibit self-advocacy and resiliency to overcoming adversity
- Possess confidence in their uniqueness
- Value the uniqueness of others
