Mission & Philosophy
Princeton House Charter School is an exceptional education program committed to meeting the needs of children with autism and their families through education, support, resources and advocacy. Princeton House provides each child the opportunity to achieve full potential through a balanced approach to physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development. Each child is accepted and supported through a constancy of love and understanding. It is our belief that through consistent communication of acceptance, the child will develop a positive self-esteem that will carry him/her through life.
The Princeton House Charter School philosophy demonstrates our commitment to children and families, which is the foundation and impetus for all we do.
To participate with children and families in adapting to personal challenges and developing skills to promote optimal independence.
To provide experiences in all areas of development within a safe, loving and secure environment which encourages the acquisition of skills that are meaningful to the child both now and for the future through an enriched and stimulated setting that is developmentally appropriate for the child.
To respond to each child's individual needs, recognizing strengths while maintaining an awareness of the developmental sequence of the learning process through an exemplary and dedicated staff that is committed to their profession and the responsibilities that come with this profession.
To function as a team in parent/child/professional partnerships in order to improve the quality of life for children and their families through open dialogue that encourages exploration of all options, consensus building and respect for each team member equally.
To relate to the community by being responsive to its changing need while fulfilling an obligation to educate the public as to the value of children with varying abilities in being a visible and proactive advocate for all children.
To support families as they advocate for the needs of their children by serving as a resource for information and assistance.
