Open Your World

Our team of creative, collaborative, and committed special educators creates and implements an individualized curriculum for each student based on their strengths to prepare them for a fulfilling life in a neurodiverse world.

As one of the first schools devoted to Autism in New England, we invoke a pioneering mindset in everything we do, including how we guide our students based on their own vision of their future.

SUPPORT AMENDMENT #649 TO THE MA HOUSE BUDGET!On Wednesday, April 10, 2024, House Ways and Means released the Fiscal Year 2025 budget. The $57.98 billion spending plan includes investments in K-12 education, housing, transportation and policy proposals regarding healthcare and early education, but DID NOT include the provision to require the Operational Services Division to issue out-of-state purchaser rate letters upon request of a C766 approved school. If this language is not included in the final budget, schools will be unable to charge a higher tuition rate to out-of-state students, which reflects cost inflation factor increases. Representative Bill Driscoll (D-Milton) has agreed to file an amendment, #649, to include this provision in the final House budget. The House debate begins on Wednesday, April 24th! Join the MAAPS Action Network to contact your State Representative and request that they support Representative Driscoll's amendment.
