THE CATHLEEN McFARLANE ROSS LEARNING LAB at SACRED HEART SCHOOL
Established in 2011
Exceptional Student Education
Sacred Heart School offers an inclusive education for students with average to gifted intelligence who are working hard to complete grade level activities. Sacred Heart School’s exceptional student education program strives to improve students’ basic, organizational, and executive functioning skills while completing grade level curriculum in a general education classroom. Teachers work with parents to reinforce these skills and instill positive attitudes towards learning.
Students who receive exceptional student educational services are in general education classrooms with accommodations. Sacred Heart School offers supplemental push-in services.
The Exceptional Student Education Department works closely with Palm Beach County’s Private Schools Services Office to ensure Sacred Heart School students have annual private school service plan meetings, initial evaluations, re-evaluations, and receive services provided by Palm Beach County facilitators.
This program is for students with mild specific learning disabilities and is not designed to accommodate the needs of students with severe learning or emotional disabilities.
