Avon Classroom students in group

The Oak Hill classroom in Avon, CT currently serves students with multiples disabilities. Avon has both an elementary classroom setting serving students ages 7-14 and a secondary classroom setting serving students ages 14-21. However, students in both settings team up for various educational exercises throughout the day. Students here have a unique opportunity to attend history/science classes with their peers in the Montessori school located within the same school building. The classroom also engages in the opportunity to gain valuable experience within the local community, making frequent visits to the bakery, library and grocery store.
