The mission of North Florida School of Special Education is to discover and foster each student’s unique abilities revealing their highest potential within an engaged community.
North Florida School of Special Education serves students with intellectual and developmental differences in the greater Jacksonville area. Our NFSSE students receive a quality education, work alongside our teaching professionals and resource therapies staff to improve their academic, vocational and social skills and participate as contributing members in the community.
At NFSSE, our faculty and staff are committed to providing a comprehensive, individualized education plan for each student that meets his or her needs and sets realistic goals for success. Because there is not one specific path to success that can be prescribed to each of our students, we emphasize that by cultivating relationships in the classroom and learning to celebrate our differences, we can truly accomplish our goals together.
North Florida School of Special Education is a 501 (c)(3) organization and is fully accredited by the Florida Council of Independent Schools (FCIS).
