Special Education

Welcome to the Special EducatioN!

We are privileged to have a wonderful faculty and staff working in the special education program at Statesboro High School.  We have classes that are self contained, resource, collaborative, and inclusion.  We serve approximately 150 students in some capacity.  Our goal is to provide the least restrictive environment in which optimum learning can take place for each student.
