Margaret K. Lewis School, also known as MKL, is a special purpose school serving the educational needs of students ages 3 to 22 years of age. Approximately 170 students attend MKL and they all qualify for Exceptional Student Education programs with services identified as Intellectual Disabilities, Autism Spectrum Disorders, Visually Impaired, Hearing Impaired, Developmentally Delayed and Speech and/or Language Impaired. In addition, many students also receive Occupational and/or Physical Therapy. These students require intensive instructional support to benefit from the educational program.
In partnership with families, Individual Education Plans are developed for each student and alternate assessments are used to monitor student achievement. At MKL, we believe all students can learn when provided with the appropriate curriculum and supports.
We have a new website and also utilize Facebook and Twitter. Follow our Facebook page at "Margaret K. Lewis School" and our Tweets at "MKL Eagles" so that you can stay informed and know what's happening. Thanks for giving me the chance to work with you, your children, and the community.
