Our approach to special education

Ascend believes all students deserve a college-preparatory education regardless of their individual needs.

To complement Ascend’s unique warm and supportive cultural model, Ascend schools provide a variety of specific supports and services to ensure that English language learners and our students with disabilities make academic and social-emotional gains every year, from kindergarten through grade 12. We offer intervention for both reading and math, supplemental evidence-based instruction, a longer school year, and social emotional support. We use a tiered system of intervention to ensure our students make academic and social gains within the classroom. Our team looks at the unique needs of each child to determine the most appropriate supports and services.

We seek to build a team of enthusiastic, self-motivated special education teachers who are excited to engage with students and their families. Our Tier 3 programs—including our SETSS and ICT models—provide students with the targeted supports they need to drive academic and social gains in our special needs populations. Each grade at every Ascend school is served by at least one ICT classroom. With targeted, ongoing special education professional development, we will train and support you every step of the way, providing you with the tools, resources, and coaching you need to reach your highest potential and to help you support the students who need it most.
