Exceptional Student Education

Also known as ESE, Exceptional Student Education is a wide-ranging program that supports students who may learn differently or require accommodations to reach their academic goals. 

Some students learn best in a self-contained, highly supported classroom.  At Mariner Middle, we offer Life Skills and Social Functioning classrooms to this end.  Our self contained team is comprised of two ESE-certified instructors as well as three paraprofessionals.

Other students can be successful in a standard classroom with support.  Our SDM team is comprised of three ESE-certified instructors as well as two paraprofessionals.  Additionally, we offer a Learning Lab, staffed by our ESE department chair, where students with IEPs can go for additional time, a quiet place to work, or other support.

Finally, some students can only thrive in a standard classroom with enrichment.  Many of these students have been identified as gifted learners.  We offer a full suite of advanced and accelerated coursework, challenging academic competitions, and the ATLAS Program to make sure that our advanced learners continue to challenge themselves during and after middle school.
