  • Mission

    We recognize and respect that our students are part of a community of diverse learners.  Our priority is to maximize student outcomes and ensure that each student develops to his/her highest potential.  The practices of the Manhasset Special Education Department are overseen by the Board of Education and are regulated by state and federal laws. This requires that individual student needs must drive programs, supports and services in “the least restrictive environment”.    We recognize that the continued partnership among administration, faculty and families is integral to our success.
