Tyler Elementary strives to be a school that is inclusive, compassionate, and connected. In addition to addressing the unique concerns of a Spanish Immersion program and an Arts Integration curriculum, Tyler offers a Special Education program that accommodates a variety of students depending on their individual needs.
Tyler has self-contained autism classrooms that operate on the principles of Applied Behavior Analysis and a low student to teacher ratio to ensure individualized attention.
Additionally, all special education students have access to part-time inclusion during their specials classes (Art, Music, P.E. & Library) to develop and generalize skills among their general education peers.
Tyler also provides full-time inclusion, which operates within a co-teaching model with a general education teacher and special education teacher modifying and assisting students as needed to be successful within the general education setting.
As a community, Tyler works to provide all students with the most appropriate environment based on their individualized needs to ensure their success academically, socially, and globally.
