About Beacon School

At Beacon School, we measure our success through our students' success. Not every student can succeed in the public school environment. Some students require emotional and academic support in order to participate successfully in a classroom setting. Beacon School is designed to serve and nurture these students through a series of specialized programs, created to promote self esteem and a sense of accomplishment. We believe that students flourish when given the tools for success within a caring environment. Founded in 1970 to expand educational opportunities for special education students, Beacon School specializes in preparing our students to transition to public school and/or vocational opportunities. Our goal is to help students become independent and contributing members of today's society. As we have progressed over the years, Beacon has continued to develop new ways to assist our students and our school districts. We have expanded our opportunities to support students through our Therapeutic Support Service Program, a collaborative effort by Beacon School and various school districts throughout Santa Clara County. This program allows students to transition to a comprehensive campus or remain in the least restrictive setting in order to obtain an education in the least restrictive environment. In addition, we have expanded our services to include an Autism Spectrum Disorder Program, serving moderate to high functioning students with autism. Currently we are serving students on our main campus and our Therapeutic Support Service Program. .
