Village Glen School Mission Statement


The mission of Village Glen School is to guide and support students on the Autism Spectrum and others with special needs in reaching their full potential socially, communicatively, and academically. Village Glen adheres to the belief that students should experience the joy of learning as a lifelong process and develop unique talents and skills in preparation for their future goals.
