Posted on March 4, 2019 By

Principals at the Harbor School, Eatontown; Alpha School, Jackson; and Gateway School, Carteret, three RKS Associates New Jersey state-approved, private special education schools, will be giving guided tours for public school Child Study Teams* from 11 New Jersey counties. Child Study Teams may include school psychologists, social workers, learning consultants; and directors or supervisors of special education and school officials who may be looking for placement for special needs students.

All three RKS schools provide education, therapeutic, and behavioral support for children who have challenges, such as multiple disabilities, cognitive impairments, autistic spectrum disorder, learning disabilities, traumatic brain injuries, behavioral disorders, or other health impairments.

A tour for the Alpha School is Tuesday, March 19, 2019, from 11:00 a.m. to Noon; for the Harbor School, Wednesday, April 10 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.; and the Gateway School, both Friday, April 12 and Wednesday, May 15 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Dana Giblin, director of the RKS schools, said, “We have invited Child Study Teams from the districts we serve and those we are hoping to serve.”

Monica DeTuro, Alpha School principal, Jackson, said, “Since its inception in 1980, the Alpha School has welcomed hundreds of children through our doors with open arms. We accept children, ranging in age from five to 21, with various disabilities including autism; Down’s syndrome; and communication, learning, social, and emotional disabilities. We work with each child as an individual with his or her own unique areas of strength and areas that require special attention.”
