Available Programs

The Alternative Middle and High School provides a structured, therapeutic environment for students whose emotional, behavioral, health, or learning challenges have impacted their abilities to be successful in traditional, public school classrooms. Many students benefit from high levels of academic support to remediate learning gaps as well as requiring smaller classroom sizes to regulate their behavior and form effective peer and adult relationships. Schedules are consistent, with frequent opportunities for breaks, both for engaging in preferred activities and/or checking in with clinicians and other support staff. The program model is based on the principles of positive behavior interventions and supports.

The Elementary Therapeutic Program: In District provides a structured environment for students whose emotional, behavioral, health, or learning challenges have impacted their abilities to be successful in traditional classroom groupings. Many students in this program are at or above grade-level academically but require smaller classroom sizes to regulate their behavior and form effective adult and peer relationships. Although students may attend this program immediately upon referral, most students transition from Shore’s Elementary Day School to this Shore program, in a public school, as their behaviors have improved. Students are mainstreamed for some classes, to the extent that they can be successful.

The Interim Alternative Education Setting, often referred to as Shore’s 45 Day Assessment Program, serves students who violate their public school districts’ disciplinary policies. Students are assigned to clinicians who conduct formal assessments using clinical inventories most appropriate to the students’ ages and presenting problems as well as observational assessments. Students are integrated into age/grade appropriate classrooms for the 45 day period so that academic classwork continues without interruption. This also most closely replicates setting events, including interactions or conflicts with peers that may occur in typical classrooms so that alternative strategies can be taught and recommendations made back to the sending districts.
