A Message from the Principal
Welcome to the 2022 - 2023 School Year!!
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the VISIONS Integrated High School Program located in the barrier-free Paramus High School. Our innovative program for students with multiple disabilities affords children in grades ninth through twelfth the opportunity to learn in an inclusive environment. Alongside their grade-level peers, students receive the intensive instructional adaptations, assistive technology, augmentative communication, and environmental supports they need to ensure academic success in a typical school setting. Our ultimate goal is for each student to work to his/her potential, while still feeling part of a school community.
Our curriculum is aligned to the grade-level New Jersey Student Learning Standards. Instruction is provided by a highly-trained and experienced staff, who work collaboratively with the general education faculty to ensure an optimum educational program for each and every student. At the high school level, we also introduce Community-Based Instruction, a number of pre-vocational experiences, and Person-Centered practices in the classroom. In addition to academic subjects, students receive speech, occupational, and physical therapies, as dictated by the IEP. Our students are provided with all the support needed so that their every-day school experiences allow them to be full members of our school community. Please contact us for additional information.
Going out to mainstream classes this year is really fun. Sometimes it isn’t fun because the work is hard. We take History, Science, Spanish, and Choir. During the day Physical, Occupational, and Speech Therapy are integrated into our schedules.
