    The Transition Center at Wood-Ridge educates students, grades 5 through the age of twenty-one, with special needs who demonstrate cognitive delays. Instruction focuses on developing each student's independent living skills to their full potential. The Transition Center provides a full day school- and community-based learning environment, which includes Individual Education Program (IEP)-driven instruction focusing on the mastery of functional academic skills required for daily living and working in the community. All students benefit from training in the areas of health; personal, workplace, and travel safety; and appropriate social interactions. Through work internships, functional academics, and a variety of daily living experiences, students are prepared to become true citizens of their communities. In addition to traditional academics, students receive instruction in art, music, adaptive physical education, and health education.

A Message from the Principal

  • Welcome to the Transition Center at Wood-Ridge.  Here at the Transition Center we serve students from grades 5 through graduation at the age of 21.  Our program is broken down into three different areas.  The first is our Middle School.  In there you will find students from grades 5 through 8.  Our next area is the high school portion.  Once these students reach of the age of 16, they will begin to participate in our group internships.  Our program has partnered with over 15 local businesses to expose our students to the vocational world.  Our final area is the Springboard class.  These students have completed their academic requirements so the focus of this class is occupational and vocational learning.

    All of our students have a true sense of belonging and feel at home during their time at the Transition Center.  If we can help you in any way, please feel free to contact us.

    Thank you.
