Special Education (TK-12)

Programs for Students with Disabilities

The Special Education Program at Granada Hills Charter (GHC) is grounded in the philosophy that ALL students can learn. A specific program is customized for every student with a disability, and a particular disability category does not automatically qualify a student for a program placement. Most students enjoy a combination of a variety of programs. In addition to the fully customizable continuum of services, all students have access to all academic programs, athletics, and activities. Our services and programs have been designed to meet a variety of students’ educational and social-emotional needs.

It's not because I was deaf that I was awarded a full-ride scholarship to attend the Rochester Institute of Technology, it's because I learned to accept my deafness in order to overcome that obstacle and then another, and another, and every other hurdle in my path.
