The B.E.S.T., (Behavioral Educational Support Team), Program is designed to provide controlled and structured alternatives for students who are unable to participate in the regular school program.  This program provides a supportive and positive environment where expectations are clearly defined and consistency in behavior management techniques are practiced.  It is our belief that students' maximum potentials can be realized when a variety of opportunities are provided for them to:

  • Express their feelings
  • Increase self-esteem
  • Develop problem-solving skills
  • Demonstrate coping techniques
  • Obtain positive reinforcement

The B.E.S.T. Program was designed with these objectives in mind.  The goal of our program is to give students the skills necessary to find success in a general education setting.
