Supporting Children with an Ongoing Connection to School
Lakemary School is a year-round, K-12 accredited school for children with special needs. All teachers are certified in Special Education, and each student benefits from services and supports designed to meet his or her Individualized Education Program (IEP).
Lakemary School follows a traditional school day and calendar. Students are placed in classrooms with peers of similar age and functioning level, and low-density class sizes allow teachers to focus more on each individual’s needs.
Developing Students for Life Beyond Lakemary
Students have access to individualized, multidisciplinary services including art, music, speech and language, recreational, and occupational therapies provided by credentialed professionals. Our staff are also trained in Safe Crisis Management (SCM) and a team of non-classroom staff are ready to assist when disruptive behaviors arise. Read our Emergency Safety Interventions Policy Handbook to learn more.
While most of our students are residents from our psychiatric residential treatment program, approximately 40% commute daily from surrounding areas like Johnson County and as far away as Emporia, KS. With over 100 students and growing, Lakemary School is a safe, wonderful environment for children with intellectual/developmental disabilities, extreme behaviors and/or psychiatric diagnoses to receive a top-notch education.
