The special character of our school

Because our learners spend so much time in school, our school offers a critically important opportunity to ensure that all students get the support and help that they need to reach their full potential.

We involve a variety of people in our educational approach such as, school staff, parents, therapists, medical professionals and autism specialists.

  • All educators form part of the “whole school community” we embrace.
  • Each Educator is expected to use his/her own special personality and/or skill to help us achieve the purpose of the school.
  • Each Educator is expected to self study and attend ongoing training workshops on a variety of topics relating to Autism Spectrum Disorder, Teaching methods and Intervention Strategies as we do not just assist the child but Amazing K also assists the families in their daily lives.
  • The Amazing K Curriculum is diverse and each element of the curriculum is taught for its value.
  • Self help, life skills, motor planning, sensory integration and speech/language all form an integral part of the curriculum at Amazing K. The truths and ethics of our program permeate in whatever the school does.
  • The focal point of the whole school is the child and their individual educational need.
  • The pupils are taught at their own pace and our ultimate goal for them is independence.
  • No Educator will ever be expected to act against their own conscience or personal philosophy of life. That would be contrary to the aims of the school.
  • We work as a team and all educators are expected to contribute, according to their individual strengths and within their personal convictions, to the total purpose of the school.
  • All teachers are role models and they are expected to act in an appropriate manner at all times.
  • To maintain a low student-teacher ratio which ensures every child is known as a person and can be assisted on an individual basis as needed.
