Education

At Intermountain, we believe learning should be fun, and a child must be in a safe emotional place in order to learn.  For many children who come to

Intermountain, school has not been a rewarding experience, socially or academically.  Intermountain School offers students a comfortable, fun and stimulating environment in which to learn.  Some of the highlights of our educational program include:

  • Each classroom is staffed by a certified special education teacher experienced in dealing with students with emotional difficulties, a trained special education technician, and a school support counselor
  • Educational program administered by the Director of Education Services who holds Master’s in Special Education and a K-12 Principal certification
  • Accredited by AdvancEd Northwest Accreditation Commission.
  • Certified Non-Public school for Montana, California, Washington and Illinois
  • Licensed Occupational Therapist and Speech Pathologist
  • 1:4 staff to student ratio; 10-12 students per classroom
  • Six hour school day, 210 school days per year
  • Individualized educational programming to address each student’s unique learning style
  • Standards-based core curriculum including educational field trips, with electives such as art, Cultural studies, music, physical education/health and social skills
  •  Extracurricular activities include Bal-A-Vis-X, basketball, S’cool Moves, Brain Gym, drama, skiing, soccer and swimming.
