Every child should be able to attend school in an environment that offers the greatest opportunity for success. St. Catherine’s R & E May School is a day treatment program that serves elementary school students with behavioral and special educational needs that cannot be met in a traditional school setting. Each student entering the program undergoes an individual assessment to determine his or her needs. The R & E May School staff—consisting of special education teachers, mental health professionals, and social workers and clinicians—then develops a comprehensive education plan tailored to meet the needs of each student. The school works closely with the child's family and home school district, helping the student develop the skills, attitudes, and knowledge necessary to successfully return to a traditional school environment.
