A school is a place where students excel, learn, and grow
This experience shapes and molds young minds and should be available to all. When the majority of the students have severe mental and physical disabilities, however, custom and unique strategies must be employed to ensure that the student’s needs are met to maximize their full learning and developmental potential.

Home for the Multi-Handicapped Program
J.P. Lord School is the home for the Multi-Handicapped Program, which serves students with multiple disabilities, ages 5-21 years, in an environment that supports students’ educational, medical, and sensory needs. The instructional program addresses the cognitive, communication, community, motor, self-help, social skills, and pre-vocational domains. Because of the fragile condition of its students, the educational process at J.P. Lord is intertwined with their medical care.
