About Us

The REAL School recognizes that all learners have important and individual strengths. Our approach leverages these personal strengths and interests as catalysts for positive change and growth across social, emotional, behavioral and academic goals. While programming to impact these goals is individualized, every individual is a precious and important part of our learning community. Students here are not merely receivers of services – they are active partners in the development and care of a school culture that supports all members. Our Core Values of Safety, Respect, Responsibility, and Kindness are directly taught and practiced, and consistently recognized and rewarded. School Commitment:The REAL School is an Adventure Based, Alternative and Special Education School serving students with and without disabilities, whose needs have not been met in traditional school programs and whose strengths have not yet been reflected in their school performance. We promise to:

  • Provide a small supportive learning community where students know that they are valued
  • Explore new possibilities and promising practices to assist students in reaching their individual goals
  • Honor and utilize the unique and inherent strengths that every student brings to our community
  • Provide a variety of ways for students to access and demonstrate achievement of the Common Core curriculum standards
  • Guide students in their development of post secondary education and career goals and action plans
