Natchaug Schools at a Glance
Since the first Joshua Center school program opened in Mansfield in 1989, Natchaug Schools have been committed to fostering a supportive and safe special education community where students can grow academically, heal emotionally and work toward personal goals. Today, our seven state-approved special education programs serve students ages 5 to 21.
Our faculty and staff meet or exceed all state special education certification and licensing requirements. All our programs are aligned with state standards for grades K-12, and we work with each student’s local school district and family/caregivers to implement IEPs. The goal is to return each student to their home district as quickly and seamlessly as possible.
To empower students to achieve academic, social-emotional, & transitional competencies to realize their potential.
