Washington Center is a separate school facility for students with severe/profound intellectual disabilities. Students are served on two specifically designed campuses. The younger children occupy a wing of Hollis Academy, renovated in 2011, with a capacity for 6 fully equipped classrooms. Older students attend the Betty Spencer Drive location, built in 2005, where there are 18 classrooms, as well as kitchens, greenhouse, gym, and media center. Additionally, at both locations there are therapy rooms, nurses' stations, administrative offices, multisensory suites and adapted playgrounds.
All students are served by classroom teachers as well as by instructors in the areas of Art, Music, PE, Daily Living, and Environmental Science. The staff also includes para-professionals, nurses, and therapists (occupational, physical, and speech).
