In 2015, with the growth and interest of applications to the school, design for phase 2 began and construction was completed in August 2016. This addition to the school added 9-12 grades to the school. It allows high school students on the autism spectrum function at a higher level.
The outdoor area provides an additional learning environment. Landscaping and circulation paths are designed specifically with these children in mind. A full size high school regulation soccer field and basketball court were included to enable students to participate in high school sports and develop social and motor skills.
Sensory rooms, speech and physical therapy rooms, and the recreational hall assist in physical development and motor skills.
The life-skills room helps the children acquire skills to become independent adults, such as: setting the table; checking out books; grocery shopping; and doing the laundry.
The school teaches children and families how to meet the challenges of autism.
