Questions About Journey School?
Can we tour the campus?
Absolutely! Please contact us to schedule a private tour of our Journey School campus.
Is the campus safe?
One of the reasons we chose this facility was because it is completely gated and aside from drop off and pick up time, the gates will be closed and locked to keep even the most adventurous of students safe.
What are your cleaning / sanitizing procedures?
Our staff sanitizes their classrooms daily with all natural nontoxic cleaner (water, vinegar, and Young Living Thieves solution). We know that anything and everything has the chance of being mouthed, and we want to ensure every surface is as safe and clean as possible. We also have a contract with GreenTree Cleaning company (also nontoxic and chemical-free) and they do a deep clean several times a week.
How are the classrooms structured?
Our classes are divided into 4 homerooms: one for older “higher” functioning, one for younger “higher” functioning, one for older “lower” functioning, and one for younger “lower functioning”. During the day each class rotates to Math/Science, Language Arts, and Life Skills. We have weekly Art therapy as well as OT and Speech for those that benefit from it. We are also doing some of our “electives” with All Nations Community School so as to provide social integration!
Do you follow a typical school year?
What are the class sizes / student to teacher ratio?
Currently our class sizes range from 3-8 students with a corresponding range of 2-4 staff per classroom. For 2021-22 we will have more classrooms and so expect class sizes to be reduced even further!
My child doesn't communicate with words, is that okay?
Absolutely! We believe that out loud words are not required for communication and we want to learn the “language” of your child and help them connect with people around them!
Do you only accept certain diagnoses?
Nope! Our school accepts children with any differing ability- we currently have students with Autism, Down syndrome, genetic disorders, Cerebral Palsy, communication disorders, and more!
What if my child isn't potty trained?
No worries! We have students at every level of bathroom dependence / independence and our staff compassionately meets each of their needs.
Do you have specific religious affiliation?
Bottom line, we are believers. We believe God creates ON PURPOSE and that EVERYONE has unique gifts and abilities and ways of communicating. We are not affiliated with a specific church or denomination. For more visit “our beliefs” page
