Jane Justin School, in partnership with families and the community, fosters the knowledge and life skills necessary for our students to achieve productive and meaningful lives while respecting and embracing the individuality of each child. To achieve this mission, Jane Justin School responds to the changing needs of our students and their families with compassion and educational excellence.
One day, each of our students may return to a traditional educational setting with the skills needed to be successful in that setting.
Jane Justin School enrolls students between the ages of 3 and 21 with developmental and learning disabilities and related behavior disorders. For the safety of our students, we only accept fully immunized children into this program.

Jane Justin School maintains a full enrollment at all times. When a child is transitioned to another school, another child from a younger classroom within the school is promoted to fill the vacancy. This process typically pushes the enrollment opening to the youngest classroom. A child whose application resides in the referral file and who is of an appropriate age for the classroom in which the opening exists is then accepted into the program.
Jane Justin School does not maintain a “waiting list” because the term implies that students are enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis. Jane Justin School does, however, maintain a referral file. The referral file allows us to offer enrollment to students whose repertoire and age can best be accommodated by the classroom in which the enrollment opening exists.
Jane Justin School serves children with developmental and learning disabilities and related behavior problems. The school is not limited to serving any one particular diagnosis. Any child with a developmental or learning disability or related behavior problems who can function well within the context of the student-to-teacher ratios we offer will be considered for enrollment. Children whose special needs require a tighter ratio are referred to the Child Study Center's Applied Behavior Analysis Department and/or other schools in the area.
Jane Justin School serves children between the ages of 3 and 21 years old.

Jane Justin School offers a need-based scholarship program. Families may apply for a scholarship upon enrollment. The financial need of a family is determined by a 3rd party organization. The Scholarship Committee of the Child Study Center uses the information provided by the 3rd party to determine the amount of scholarship to award.
The morning drop-off begins at 8:15 AM and continues until 8:30 AM. The afternoon pick-up time is 3:00 PM.
Jane Justin School operates an extended care program for an additional fee. Students who are enrolled in this program may be dropped off as early as 7:30 AM and picked up as late as 5:30 PM.

Jane Justin School offers a summer school program that typically runs 6 weeks in June and July.
The visit will last 2 hours (10 AM to 12 PM). Upon arrival, the child will be taken to the classroom that is best suited to his or her age. While the child gets comfortable in the classroom, the child's parents will meet with the director of the school. The director will ask the child's parents to describe the behavioral, developmental, and academic challenges that have led them to seek out the services of Jane Justin School. The director will then describe how Jane Justin School operates and give the parents the opportunity to ask questions. The director will then tour the parents through the entire school. At the end of the tour, the director will leave the parents in the waiting room so that she may return to the classroom and assist the teacher in gathering information for the school admissions committee.
Information gathered during the visit will be presented during a school admissions committee meeting. If the committee determines that the services offered by Jane Justin School are well matched to the special needs of the child, placement of the child's application in the referral file is offered. If, however, the committee determines that the services offered by Jane Justin School are not well matched to the special needs of the child, recommendations are made to seek the services offered by the Child Study Center's Department of Applied Behavior Analysis as well as other schools in the area.
