The JRI day schools are leaders in academic excellence, providing quality education in a supportive, therapeutic environment to a wide range of middle and high school students. Our students are capable learners, whose emotional, social, or individual learning styles may complicate their schooling and make traditional public school feel overwhelming. The schools provide integrated clinical, academic, and transitional services that enable students to reach their full academic and social potential, and that prepare them for post-high school success.
Engaging curriculum is provided by highly qualified, dedicated teachers and aligns fully with the Common Core. A full range of core and elective classes is offered, with a focus on STEM, art, and vocational exploration. State-of-the-art technology resources are integrated to support student learning and executive-function development. At each campus, a team of professional clinicians works seamlessly with students, families, and teachers to support individualized skill development and student goals. Transition specialists provide one-on-one and group activities to support college and job exploration.
Fully approved by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, JRI day schools operate year-round and have rolling enrollment; students are referred throughout the year by the special education department of the school district in which they live. Referrals for private pay families are also accepted.
