The Tuttle School provides an educational experience that capitalizes on the mind, body, and spirit of children with intellectual and developmental disorders.



Our mission is to provide children with intellectual and developmental challenges a nurturing environment that not only celebrates their differences in academic, social and emotional abilities, but also empowers them to reach their full potential. We strive to foster lifelong friendships and instill in our students the fundamental values of respect, honor, trustworthiness, and good citizenship. Our goal is to help these children become confident, contributing, respectful, and respected members of society.

“Every child can learn and has the right to be taught in the way that he or she learns best.”

Why Tuttle?

As part of the Tuttle School community, every student plays an integral role in creating a complete and spectacular environment. When children feel free to express themselves and communicate effectively, they can use the skills they learn daily to become independent and successful. Ultimately, the goal is to have students that are eager to come to school and learn.

The Tuttle Advantage
We provide individualized student instruction based on assessments, guiding the acquisition of academic, social, life skills, and vocational skills that align with parental expectations.
“Try Another Way”
If something is not working, try again. If that doesn't work, try a different approach. The staff at Tuttle School are well-trained, innovative, and compassionate leaders in their field. They work tirelessly to ensure that each student is being taught in the most effective and efficient way possible.
We provide opportunities for children who have not had successful social experiences to form friendships, which has immeasurable benefits for both the child and parent.
Our summer camps provide fun social opportunities for students, offering respite services for parents and siblings.
Our students have the opportunity to participate in Student Council. Through this council, they organize and support various community-oriented initiatives such as food drives, blanket drives for local animal shelters, book drives, and other similar activities. By teaching our students the value of volunteering and giving back to the community, we aim to instill in them the significance of character and humanitarian services.
The Tuttle School provides daily opportunities for physical fitness that focus on developing motor skills and competitive athletic abilities, including participation in the Special Olympics. Our athletes have competed locally and even internationally, traveling as far as China to compete in the International Games.
The faculty at the Tuttle School are highly trained through professional development. Parents acknowledge their expertise, passion for their students and families, and ability to tap into each student's strengths by going above and beyond. Additionally, they are recognized for their longevity at the school.
