The Deron Experience

quotes-18px The gratitude I have for Deron is beyond words. From the staff who greets you in the front office to the teachers, nurse and social workers, the love you feel, knowing your child is well-taken care of is more than enough for me.

Why Choose the Deron School

Dedicated Staff
Strong community of dedicated staff members, many of whom have been with the school for ten, fifteen or more years. They understand the challenges disabled students face, and they recognize each accomplishment, no matter how small.
Transition Program
Assists students in making a smooth transition from high school to adult life. Integrated into all areas of the school program, activities are based upon individual student’s needs, interests and abilities.
Extended School Year
Throughout the summer, students venture beyond the school on a regular basis to participate in extensive community experiences.
Autism Program

Maximizes the students independence and community inclusion. Acquiring these critical social and communication skills promotes safety and expands the students’ opportunities.
Parental Involvement
Parents are informed of progress on a regular basis through written reports and personal and telephone conferences. Parents are invited to special events throughout the year.
