Washington Center is a Greenville County public school serving moderate and severe mentally and physically disabled students ages 5-21.
At Washington Center we live our motto daily..."Those You Think Cannot...Can!".
New Washington Center Facility
Washington Center is a separate school that serves students throughout all of Greenville County. All students are placed at Washington Center on a decision made by a Due Process Committee consisting of regular and separate school representatives and parents. The Due Process approach enables student needs to be met with a spectrum of programming opportunities across the District, including Washington Center.
Most students have concurrent challenges such as blindness, deafness, or physical disabilities. Students are served from throughout the district and are transported by the District to Washington Center.
Washington Center has a staff consisting of seventeen classroom teachers, 42 paraprofessionals, two registered nurses, and two licensed Practical nurses. An Orderly, Media Specialist, and Special programming teachers, as well as Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapists round out the staff. Each of these programs are further detailed on our Program web page. An on-site cafeteria prepares meals to meet the specialized dietary needs of our students and our on-site Custodial staff supports all programming needs daily.
Each student at Washington Center has an Individual Education Plan. Students have access to the State Curriculum Standards and are evaluated on the SC-Alternative Assessment as directed by the "No Child Left Behind" mandate. All programs at our school are designed and implemented to meet the needs of each individual student according to current best practices and in creative, functional ways.
Our Mission Statement
The mission of Washington Center is to provide opportunities for students to explore and develop potential for independent functioning and community involvement by addressing students' individual needs and creating a partnership with home, school, and community.
