Special Education

Inclusive programs celebrate children’s similarities as well as their different abilities and cultures. In inclusive classrooms, children with special needs take part in the general education curriculum based on their ages, where the curriculum and the room are adapted to meet children’s needs. Bethel offers a continuum of special education services, including inclusive classrooms to meet the individual needs of students.
