Lucy Daniels School is a therapeutic day school for children who are experiencing social, emotional, or behavioral difficulties at home or in school.
At the Lucy Daniels School, each child’s education and therapeutic program is carefully tailored to his or her needs and strengths. Social, emotional, and academic growth takes place in classrooms where our students feel safe, understood, and supported in all developmental areas.

Our Unique Approach
We provide an alternative choice in our therapeutic school for children who struggle emotionally and academically in a mainstream school environment.
Lucy Daniels School teachers develop relationships with each child, providing support and strategies to work through the behavioral and emotional blocks to academic success. Children first grade and older work individually with therapists on-site, while parents of children in the Early School work with a parent support therapist.
Our classrooms are bright and airy with an abundance of natural light. We have a well-equipped outdoor learning environment that includes a playground, nature trails, and a therapeutic teaching garden with a greenhouse for year-round activities. The average teacher/student ratio at Lucy Daniels School is 1:5 but is typically lower in the Early School. Our school hours are 8:30 AMto-2:45 PM.
