Summit School provides services to students, ranging in age from 4 to 21, with developmental disabilities that result in cognitive, social and/or behavioural impairments.
- We are committed to offering each student an environment where respect, mutual care and increased independence are fundamental.
- We recognize each child’s need for individual programming, while at the same time, being a part of a group of students with similar cognitive and social abilities. Optimal learning, individual friendships and development of social networks are thus simultaneously encouraged.
- We hold a holistic view of development, in which we use a multidisciplinary approach with every student. They are given learning opportunities so that they may reach their potential in the following development areas: academic, communication, emotional, physical, creative, social and vocational.
- We encourage students to become active and productive members of their respective communities.
- We value ongoing and long term mutually supportive relationships with our students’ families and caregivers.
- We maintain a commitment to encourage professional growth and continuing education for our staff, thereby ensuring the highest quality of services.
- We sustain a high level of involvement in research and training programs at secondary, CEGEP and university levels.
