The Creekside School's emphasis on family stems from our recognition that autism doesn't just impact parents.
It impacts the whole family: siblings, grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins.
All families play an important role in their students' success. The families of students with autism play a crucial role in supporting their child's journey to adulthood.
Our Mission: To dramatically improve quality of life for our students and their families.
The Creekside School is a functional skills program leading to a certificate of high school completion. Functional academics expose students to a mix of academic skills, concepts and curriculum while teaching the everyday life skills our students need to be as independent as possible in adulthood.
Curriculum at The Creekside School is individualized for each student based on their IEP goals and in alignment with the standards-based functional-skills curriculum guide developed by the Special Education Administrators of County Offices (SEACO) as well as the California Common Core standards.
All students learn daily living skills at Creekside including cooking, laundry, hygiene, gardening, cleaning, and grocery shopping. Students also participate in pre-vocational and volunteer activities on and off campus such as weekly meal deliveries for Meals on Wheels and stocking shelves at nearby stores.
