Special Education
  • Welcome and thank you for visiting The Heights Community School Special Education Website for students with Learning Disabilities.

    Our goal is to meet the individual needs of each of the students that we serve.  We offer academic support services using the following service models: inclusion, collaboration, and small group instruction.  We also strive to facilitate learning through various modalities such as  visual, hands on, auditory and technology .

    St. Paul Public Schools Special Education Philosophy:
    When students believe that success is possible, they will try. So our first priority in any class is to help students believe in themselves and their ability to learn.   We encourage our students to find their strengths and interests and to recognize their potential through exploration and diverse learning styles.
