Special Education

  • At the Young Women's Leadership Academy, we are committed to ensure that students with disabilities are fully involved in all areas of campus life and make progress in the general curriculum successfully and appropriately as a result of teachers, parents, and administrative staff effectively implementing modifications, adaptations, and/or accommodations.

    We believe Special Education should meet the individual needs of each student and that it should be based on assessment results.
