Special Education

Mission Statement

It is the mission of the Ocean City School's Department of Special Services to provide the opportunity for each student that has been identified as eligible to receive special education services, to achieve their maximum intellectual, academic, social and emotional growth. Our goal is to ensure that each student develops a positive self-image and become a productive citizen in order to live a happy and fulfilling life.

We serve children and young adults with special needs ages 3-21.
