Special Education

AchieveKids has two non-public school campuses located in Palo Alto and East San Jose. We serve over 115 elementary and secondary education students from four Bay Area counties. Throughout our 20 classrooms, students are served at a 1:1 or 2:1 student to staff ratio. AchieveKids is a member of California Association of Private Special Education Schools.

We use a multi-disciplinary approach, and blend best practices from the fields of Special Education, Mental Health, Behavior Analysis, Speech and Language, and Vocational Education to develop highly individualized curricula and teaching approaches. Our program is individualized to each student, and our approaches are focused on positive practices, communication, community integration and interaction, and are data-driven. Through this multi-faceted approach, the goal is to teach our students the skills necessary to return to their public school or a less restrictive environment. Classrooms are grouped according to age, social, and educational needs.


Both schools are composed of experienced, highly qualified, special education teachers, mental health clinicians, speech and language pathologists, board certified behavior analysts, vocational and transition coordinators, and program counselors.
