Special Education Program

The mission of the special education department at Mahwah High School is to prepare our students to be successful when they graduate from high school. We expect them to have a plan for achieving their post-secondary goals. Accordingly, we provide a continuum of services and supports. Students in our Crossroads Program receive instruction in functional skills as well as academic skills. Community-based instruction remains an important part of that program. Students in our resource program receive focused skills instruction within the district curriculum. Our collaborative program places a special education teacher in the classroom to co-teach and provide appropriate accommodations and supports.

Throughout our program we emphasize student engagement and accountability, partnerships with parents, and student self-advocacy. We encourage students to participate in extra-curricular activities. The department joins parents in taking great pride as we watch our ninth grade freshmen transition to young adults with high school diplomas and a vision for their future.
