Knowledge is Power

Our schools are located on the campuses of Randolph Residential Services (Randolph, NY) and Wyndham Lawn Residential Services (Lockport, NY), and are specifically designed to meet the needs of students experiencing educational, emotional, and behavioral challenges. In addition to our campus residents, both schools serve day students from their surrounding school districts, as well as CSE students from across New York State.

Our schools use strength-based teaching strategies such as differentiated learning with small class sizes. Careful consideration is given to each child’s Individual Education Plan (IEP) to ensure that our school can meet your child’s specific instructional needs, and that the environment will effectively support his or her level of social and emotional development.

We are also very excited to announce that in the autumn of 2018, the Smart School Bond Act Investment Grant will provide support for significant upgrades to our school’s technology infrastructure, allowing us to enhance the educational experience for students at all levels!
