Best Point Education & Behavioral Health SCHOOL

Best Point Education & Behavioral Health School is a state chartered, non-public, alternative education option for children who have difficulty succeeding in a traditional school setting. All children referred to our school must have an IEP and district referral, which covers the cost of tuition and provides transportation to and from school.

We are independently operated but are an option for districts that have a need to refer children to a separate facility. Children benefit from low teacher-student ratios (1:4 in the Lower School & 1:6 in the Upper School). Classes focus on each student’s individual needs. Our goal is to transition students from our campus to their home schools when possible.

Eligible Students:

Have an IEP, district referral, Medicaid eligibility and a diagnostic assessment that indicates medical necessity for partial hospitalization services.

The Integrated Therapeutic Classroom operates on the same schedule as Best Point Education & Behavioral Health Lower School and transportation is provided through Medicaid. Our objective is for students to progress academically and behaviorally so they are able to transition to a less restrictive environment.

The Upper School also utilizes PAES® (Practical Assessment Exploration System) Lab, which offers students structured exposure to over 264 simulated work activities via the transition curriculum.

Theater Arts Program

Best Point Education & Behavioral Health School collaborates with the Ensemble Theater to offer a theatre arts program. This program is designed to enhance student’s self-esteem, social skills and appreciation for the arts. Annually, each school performs an original play, scripted by students. Students learn and participate in every aspect of the play, from writing, set design and lighting to costume fittings and on-stage rehearsal. Students perform to audiences consisting of family members, donors, trustees, and staff.
