We are very excited about the opportunity to continue to grow The Auburn School in Baltimore. - Marina Major, Auburn’s President
Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) August 27, 2014
The Auburn School (“Auburn”) announced its move to a new location just in time for the new school year to accommodate its growing student community. Auburn serves students with challenges in social skills, communication, pragmatic language and organization, such as Asperger’s syndrome. Auburn’s staff and board of advisors include distinguished national, state and local education leaders and professionals. Auburn’s Baltimore Campus opened in 2011 with 10 students and currently is serving 34. The new facility is located on the site of Baltimore Hebrew Congregation (“BHC”) and provides the school community with an ideal facility that will allow for growth. The new space has been renovated to meet the needs of Auburn. In addition to the 8,000 square feet of classroom space, the new facility includes a gym, playing fields, playground, science lab and music room.
“We are very excited about the opportunity to continue to grow The Auburn School in Baltimore,” said Marina Major, Auburn’s President. “The team has worked hard to build a strong program that provides students with both high quality academics and a comprehensive social learning program. The newly expanded campus will allow us to serve more students in a terrific setting. We are honored BHC has chosen Auburn to share their facility.”
“The leadership and staff at BHC join me in welcoming the students and staff of The Auburn School,” said Rabbi Andrew Busch. “We are very excited they have chosen our campus where they will have a place to grow their enrollment.”
High quality educational options for students with Asperger’s syndrome and related challenges are in very short supply. The Auburn School, the first of its kind, has three campuses in the Metro DC/ Baltimore region.
Key features include:
- a strong academic program, aligned with common core standards;
- comprehensive social learning programs embedded in instruction throughout the school day;
- positive behavioral supports, individualized learning plans and research-based methodologies;
- integrated related services (social learning, OT, and behavior support specialists, on staff);
- small class sizes, and a highly-trained faculty and staff; and,
- an educational environment specifically designed to meet the needs of bright students with challenges in social skills and communication.
