Oak Hill School Faculty

Oak Hill School teachers spend extraordinary amounts of time with our students to develop strong bonds and collaborative relationships.  Our teaching principles and practices are based on nearly 20 years of front-line experience and our practical, classroom-tested methods are influenced by the latest research on autism, cognitive development, and social-emotional learning. Our teachers receive specialized hands-on training when they arrive at Oak Hill and they continue their education through ongoing training.  Nearly all Oak Hill faculty have advanced degrees in special education.
