Tuttle School Rules!
THE TUTTLE SCHOOL is a school that welcomes children, ages 5-21, with Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities. A nurturing environment where all children are celebrated for their gifts and their potential, Tuttle School is also known for being a place where friendships are formed – friendships that last a lifetime! Social gatherings among students are designed to foster pragmatic skills, skills that are important for school and service to the community.
The Tuttle School offers a non-graded program designed to teach age-appropriate functional skills within a school and community setting. Our school strives to teach each student the skills needed to lead successful and personally fulfilling lives at his/her ability level. Each student in The Tuttle School has unique needs, and these differences require that emphasis is placed on the teaching and application of functional skills. The Tuttle School utilizes research-based programs as part of the curriculum.
The Tuttle School Vision Statement
The Tuttle School’s vision is a world in which people with Developmental and Intellectual challenges will be recognized for their strengths, celebrated for their differences, and appreciated for their contributions to society, all of which will make the world a better place.
Who We Serve
We serve children with Down Syndrome, Autism Spectrum Disorder, Cerebral Palsy, Fragile X, Williams Syndrome, and Prader-Willi Syndrome, among others. Many of our students do not have a diagnosis other than Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities. We are a school focused on teaching functional academics, vocational and social skills.
Within the walls and halls of The Tuttle School, we seek the good in every student, applaud successes, build pillars of character and restore confidence. A positive, nurturing and ‘can-do’ spirit lives within the heart of each and every Tuttle School student.
Your Future Begins Today
The Tuttle School offers a well-rounded education enabling students to have the same opportunities and experiences as their peers in more traditional settings. This, coupled with a highly talented, trained and skilled faculty, gives the Tuttle School student a great future to be the best he/she can be!
“The Tuttle School gave our son the opportunity to learn and practice the life skills he needed to become an independent and responsible member of society. The supportive and nurturing environment of The Tuttle School encouraged Patrick to be aware of others’ needs as well as his own. Today Patrick is a very happy and confident young man. The confidence Patrick gained in his years at The Tuttle School, combined with the learning opportunities provided by the wonderful teachers and staff, are gifts Patrick will use the rest of his life. We are forever indebted to The Tuttle School.” – Kathy & Ken, Former Tuttle School Parents
