Mission Statement

The Temple Grandin School serves exceptional students with Asperger’s Syndrome and similar learning profiles. Our program provides a challenging curriculum, real-world resources and mentors, and integrated social and organizational skills support. Working together with families, our mission is to meet the unique needs of these students in an individualized, strength-based program that builds students’ confidence, knowledge, and perseverance and prepares them to fulfill their potential as effective citizens of the 21st century. Through our collaborative program, TGS will educate the community about the talent, skills and character of its students, and be a catalyst for the development of innovative educational programs that meet the needs of all students.

Description

TGS is a middle and high school day school near Boulder, CO. We specialize in verbal, average to above average students who are looking for preparation for successful life after high school, not simply academically, but also in the area of social and life skills as well.

There are other good schools through which a student with Asperger's Syndrome might progress adequately. However, upon graduation, those students may still not have the self-awareness and coping skills that will enable them to succeed on their own. TGS works to prepare students for that success.
