SCEC Classrooms

Alternative Middle School

South Coast Educational Collaborative’s Alternative Middle School classrooms provide educa-tional/therapeutic services for students between the ages of 11 and 15 years whose social, emotional, and/or learning challenges have prevented success in school.

The immediate objective is to provide an academic program of core curriculum subjects aligned with the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks while providing both staff support and direct student services which will enable maximum student success in the general education or designated special education setting.

Educators incorporate research-based best practices with supports provided by continual professional development, technical assistance, and a network of expert consultants. Grades 5 through 8.
