Key Program Goals:

  • Maximize each student’s daily utilization of their individualized communication
  • Provide the traditional high school experience through departmentalized instruction
  • Increase each student’s knowledge of grade level topics through hands-on and interactive learning experiences supported by therapy
  • Develop student’s ability to support a position and communicate these experiences to their peers or community members

Matheny High School students engage in creative lessons that follow New Jersey Common Core State Standards and the Core Curriculum Content Standards. In high school, Matheny students rotate classes for each subject reflecting the typical high school experience and where teachers can give highly individualized attention to each student’s academic need. The teachers, therapists, and paraprofessionals provide age appropriate experiences in the classroom that reflect becoming more active decision makers in creating their own milestones.
