Specialized Learning Needs
The Watershed School Charter School delivers special education services that comply with School District policy and state and federal law. Children with different learning abilities will receive a high quality education at The Watershed School.
Teaching through multiple strategies and allowing for flexibility in ways to display mastery of classroom work is a hallmark of good instruction. Project-based learning, one of the main components of The Watershed School, involves learning through experiences. Many of our projects will focus on ecological concepts, while others will have a strong service-learning component. Highly relevant concepts like these, which use hands-on, flexible performance, and authentic experiences, work well with all children. They also allow for alternative approaches that address students' individual differences, variations in learning styles, intelligences, abilities, and disabilities.
