Our vision is that students with disabilities in the Menands School District will experience success academically, socially, and emotionally, and that they will make great strides in each of these areas during their time in our school. We want students with special needs to feel that they are fully a part of their school – actively participating in and contributing to the wide range of learning experiences and school activities.
