Ozone Park, NY 11416
At Martin De Porres we believe that all children can learn and our goal is to help students achieve their highest potential. We emphasize the development of those academic, vocational, emotional and social skills that will maximize their ability to be independent and to contribute to the community. We structure the curriculum by creating an appropriate blend of academic, affective, and practical learning experiences. We want every student to build "skills for life".
The educational component of the CASA is located at the Martin De Porres High School in Rockaway Park. The CASA program is a "school within a school" in that it is housed within the High School. There, CASA students have access to all the facilities and opportunities contained within larger MDP High School while maintaining the supports needed for success.
Here, students receive mandated services of counseling, speech, occupational therapy and physical therapy if the IEP mandates such services. Educational and cultural field trips are a part of the program and designed to enhance the educational experience. CASA students can also participate in MDP sports teams.
