Middle School/Prevocational Program

Our program builds upon the skills developed at the elementary level and serves middle school students between the ages of 14 to 16. As our student continue to develop confidence and skills, our teachers and specialists concentrate on the unique needs of adolescents. The functional academic classroom program is departmentalized and supplemented by instruction in the Daily Living Center, located within our campus, to emphasize skill generalization to real world experiences.

"My son is on his high school swim team and has made it to the City Champs. He has been practicing a lot. All of his accomplishments I still credit to The Timothy School. He would not be where he is today if it had not been for all of your dedication."
