Safe school for children with disabilities

The Downside

Little information available

PS X012, the Lewis and Clark School, is an orderly school where students feel overwhelmingly safe, surveys report. The school has high expectations for students and effective teachers, and as a result the quality of teaching is good according to the 2015 Quality Review.

The school, which has about 250 students in grades 6 to 12, mainly serves children with intellectual disabilities or with autism. The average attendance rate for the 2014-2015 school year was 84 percent, according to the Comprehensive Education Plan.

ADMISSIONS: Citywide. PS X012 is part of District 75, a network of 69 schools dedicated to New York Citys students with disabilities who require increased attention. District 75 provides educational, vocational, and behavioral support programs for students who are on the autism spectrum, have significant cognitive delays, are significantly emotionally challenged, have a sensory impairment or have multiple disabilities.
