  • Gardening

    Students and staff are working hard in our garden. The organic garden will feature a number of seasonal vegetables and flowers. In our organic garden, Snipe's Farm planted a variety of fruit trees, berry bushes, and herbs that are tended by the students on a regular basis. Our students often have the pleasure of enjoying the fruits of our garden and have learned to eat natural unprocessed snacks. “To plant a garden is to believe in tomorrow.” ~ Audrey Hepburn

  • Meet Our Clinical Support Team!

    Within our trauma-informed environment, clinical and behavioral support is critical for the personal and academic growth of our students. We believe the root of many behavioral issues students face can be linked to traumatic experiences. Our behavioral and clinical support teams play an important role in fulfilling our mission by helping students identify past trauma and learning new strategies for growth and change.

  • Meet Our Behavior Support Professionals!

    Our staff behavioralists work directly with students to identify healthy behaviors and help students apply those behaviors in and out of school. When negative behavior occurs, our behavioralists will try to determine the causes of the behavior and work with the student, teachers, case managers, and family to determine a course of action to prevent further actions from occurring.

  • OUR MISSION


    To teach students the tools they need to lead a healthy life

    We pursue our mission by incorporating evidence-based best-practices throughout our organization so that VDS-enrolled students receive FAPE and IEP-fulfilling education in a safe, structured, and supportive trauma-informed learning community.

    Each day we blend trauma-informed care, an understanding of neuroeducation, and cutting-edge educational technology to provide students with the skills, tools, strategies, and experiences they will need to make healthy choices and to lead healthy lives both inside and outside of school.   

    We provide VDS students with a secure environment in which they can feel physically, socially, and emotionally safe while learning to understand their own experiences and how to productively change the way they respond to these experiences.
