The Grangeville School was established in 2009 by parents who had children with special needs. The parents had tried to move their children in several schools in an effort to ensure that they received an education that was applicable and congruent with their needs. However, none of the schools that they visited effectively addressed the unique needs of the children, especially in an individual way.
The parents themselves decided to team up with a few partners who would offer logistic support and set up a school. They put up their own unique school that attends to the needs and concerns of such children. This was important in that the parents had an understanding of:
- The children who were unique and talented in diverse ways;
- The need for an Individual Education Programs (IEPs) for each child; and,
- An education program that would be adopted to a future career in a global world.
To develop learners’ potential for independent living, with active creative minds, a sense of understanding and compassion for others.
