Mountainside’s Developmental Learning Center is a self-contained Special Education Classroom, designed to serve our students who are challenged with significant developmental delays. It is the philosophy of the Mead School District to assist all students with disabilities and to create, for each student, an individualized educational program with an appropriate degree of exposure to his/her non-disabled peers. The program focuses on actualizing each student's positive self-image and emphasizes functional academic, social and pre-vocational skill training, with the purpose of providing students the ability to successfully function in the community after graduation from high school.
