The mission of the Hunter school is to give students with social, academic, behavioral and emotional difficulties diagnosed with ADHD, Anxiety, High Functioning Autism, Mood, Sensory and related conditions who may be coded or not coded in special education, a strong sense of dignity, self-esteem, and self-respect for themselves and others.
Our goals are to help the students become aware of their strengths to provide them with strategies, support, and networks necessary for them to succeed. This school is designed to develop, in the students, a sense of citizenship, character, honesty, and ethics, both in the school and in the community environment, while providing a good academic background.
The Hunter School is based upon holistic philosophy, which recognizes the emotional, mental, and physical needs of the students. Central to our concept is the utilization of Energetic Mindfulness, the Salem Philosophy, and Permaculture. A vegetarian diet, minimally processed foods, without artificial colors and preservatives, are also utilized.
