To ensure maximum learning, each classroom is staffed with a teacher and a assistant for up to nine students. Students typically spend two or three years in one academic homeroom before transitioning to the next homeroom. Matriculation occurs on an individual basis and is determined by a variety of factors including age, social maturation, and class groupings. Although the Tuttle School program is not transcript-based, students receive a certificate of completion upon graduation.
The Tuttle School serves students, ages 5-21, with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It is designed to teach functional skills, and age-appropriate academics in a school or community setting. Tuttle School strives to teach students to lead successful and personally fulfilling lives at their individual ability level. The unique needs of Tuttle School students are met through individualized instruction; skills for life, social skills, physical education, sensory integration, technology and vocational training.
“Our students in Tuttle School find they are in a “fitting” place where they are loved and accepted for the unique individuals they are. Everyone here is special!”
