Makes Julie Billiart Schools Different Than Other Special Needs Schools?
Since no two students learn
the same way, our interventions specialists adapt their teaching methods to
meet the needs of how each student learns best. Our low student/teacher ratios
(6:1), flexible learning environment and onsite therapists (speech, occupational, music, art, behavior), also contribute to our ability to meet each student’s unique learning needs.
Recently named a “School of Excellence” by the National Association of Special Education Teachers, we have established ourselves over the past 65 years with a reputation of exceptional dedication, commitment and achievement in the the field of special education. We are proud and honored to be recognized for our innovative and successful approach to teaching and empowering students
that learn differently.
As a Catholic organization
rooted in the educational principles of the Sisters of Notre Dame, Julie
Billiart Schools welcome all faith traditions. Our students are loved, accepted
and given a sense of belonging. We recognize each of their unique gifts and
talents and ask each of them to work to their potential regardless of their
abilities. Likewise, students are expected to treat one another with kindness,
respect, and acceptance.
"Julie Billiart Schools has helped my child become a better version of himself. He no longer feels different when he's having a bad day and is now learning how to work through his frustrations. They have also helped him see that he's not the only one that has challenges. The teachers and therapists at JB really know and understand how to reach children that learn differently. Not only has the school embraced my child, but they have embraced our whole family."
